I can see this as well on my AIX6.1 system. So it's probably an issue
with the build system.

No, the buildsystem should have copied them there as well.

Once the problem with the buildsystem gets sorted out, you wouldn't have
to care.

Please open a bug so we can track this problem.

No, the binaries should be linked against those libraries with absolute
paths. You might only need to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH for libs like
libtalloc and libtdb that are supposed to be installed under a standard
library path like /usr/lib/. The private libs will be installed
somewhere else, but still be found due to the absolute linking.

Not with the waf buildsystem. If you are only interested in the
file/print serving part, you can give the old buildsystem in source3 a
try instead.
