I have to compile samba-vfs for Ubuntu 10.10 for this i did following steps:

Default samba is installed on my system and it's working. Now, i want to compile samba-vfs module. so i did following steps:

1. samba source was not on ubuntu also "apt-get source samba" was fail. so i downloaded the "samba-3.5.4.tar.gz" and extracted it.
2. cd samba-3.5.4/source3 and run ./autogen.sh it gave error "./autogen.sh need autoconf 2.53 or later to build samba from GIT". but there was configure file so i run ./configure and make and make install.

3. Then i downloaded "samba-vscan-0.3.6.tar.bz2" extracted it in samba-3.5.4/example/VFS/
4. cd /samba-3.5.4/example/VFS/samba-vscan-0.3.6 then run ./configure it says "configure: error: ../.././source doesn't exist" then i run "./configure --with-samba-source=/samba-3.5.4/source3" then it get configure successfully. but when run make it gives error "Makefile:68: *** Recursive variable `FLAGS' references itself (eventually). Stop."

How do i solve this. Please help me.
