Thank you for the response.

I stumbled upon those pages this afternoon.

Sorry for the un-needed post.

Thanks all.

In short: there is no -dev package because it has to be supported
upstream first (particularly upstream deciding what interfaces are
considered "supported" and not internal).

So, ATM, to rebuild VFS modules, you're on your own and the guarantee
that they won't break later on is low.

The above bugs should indeed be reported in Bugzilla so that upstream
samba developers can bring their input but that needs to be done by
someone who is able to explain things and understand answers, which
I'm not..:-)
