Good Morning,

Environment :openchange / samba4 ,ubuntu 12.04, 32bit

CLI: make samba-git-update

fails with:-

ldconfig says:

/sbin/ldconfig.real: Cannot stat /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libnss_db.so: No
such file or directory

        libtevent.so.0 -> libtevent.so.0.9.15
        libtevent.so.0 -> libtevent.so.0.9.17

It would appear that the linker is using /usr/include/tevent.h that indeed
does not define the function tevent_set_trace_callback and the relevant

How do I get the waf system to force the linker to use the internel library?
Any legal pointers in the  right direction would be gratefully received.
