The gettext problem is most likely not your problem. I had
recently installed my own build of gettext I uninstalled that
and Samba builds correctly, both the git master and 4.1.5. It is likely
that the Samba configure and build was finding parts from both the
original Solaris gettext and my new version. I suppose that it is
possible that Samba just does not like version of gettext,
but if so that is a seperate problem.

I have done a quick test of running the modified 4.1.5 as a Samba 3
file server and it works. I had hoped that this might fix Bug 10362,
but no such luck. I will try to do a join as a DC a little later.
