The script shipped with samba is very basic and doesn't allow any 
changes on the installation. Like here, I use --sysconfdir=/etc. But the 
script only searches the directories below $FROMWHERE.

The easiest way to find out why the tar fails, is to remove the 
">/dev/null 2>&1" from all "tar" commands temporarily. Then you'll see, 
why tar doesn't exit with 0.
