Hi Andrew

No go:-(

New git: Version 4.0.0alpha21-GIT-e8e5afd on Ubuntu 12.04
provision --use-s3fs --realm=polop.site --domain=CACTUS 
--adminpass=Pass at w0rd --server-role=dc

get_nt_acl_no_snum: fset_nt_acl returned zero.
ProvisioningError: Your filesystem or build does not support posix ACLs, 
s3fs is unworkable in this mode

So tried:
./configure.developer --with-acl-support
Still will not provision.

We are using posix acls fine:
/dev/sda1 on / type ext4 (rw,errors=remount-ro,acl,user_xattr)

What have I done wrong?
