[Samba] Join as DC requires libacl, not avail on Solaris

Arter managing to build Samba 4.1.5 on Solaris 10 i386. I tried to
join an existing Windows 2000 Server Active Directory domain as an
additional domain controller. The join started to work and then died
with the error:

Error: Samba was compiled without the posix ACL support that s3fs requires.
Try installing libacl1-dev or libacl-devel, then re-run configure and make.

I downloaded acl-2.2.52 and the attr-2.4.47 that it required. It looks
like these are really intended only for Linux. Solaris 10 does have ACLs.
I don't know if they can be considered to be posic ACLs or not.

Does anyone have any idea how to get around this problem? Our
Windows 2000 server machine is now 15 years old and I would really
like to have a backup domain controller running.
