[Samba] Crossing Compiling samba 4.1.0

I can take a look at it, but need some direction where to go for the technical list. We have 3.6.5 and thought we had SMB2 support already for the smbclient, but realized it was only for the server in that release. Jeremy had added the support for SMB2 in smbclient, but in the 4.0rc releases, which we greatly appreciate, so we were waiting for 4.1.0 to be released. We only utilize smbclient at this time. Any information would be appreciated.

A very small start has been made on it, with one small patch in master.
Sadly while we introduced waf quite some time ago, and clearly stated that autoconf was deprecated 6 months before 4.0 was released, it has only been since Samba 4.1 that anybody has raised cross-compilation as a major missing use case. 

What we need is for folks such as yourself who need this support to collaborate on the samba-technical list to work on the remaining issues.
