I'm migrating Kodi's build system from targeting samba v3 to v4. I'm trying to find the equivalent configure options and targets in v4/WAF for what we're currently using to build samba v3. (We only build libsmbclient.)

1. For make -C source3 libsmbclient, it looks like the equivalent with v4/WAF is:

make smbclient

Is that correct?

2. What's the equivalent for make -C source3 installlibsmbclient? I tried

buildtools/bin/waf install --targets=smbclient

And that looks like it's about to work, but it fails at the end with the following error:

File 'bin/default/source3/libsmb/libsmbclient.inst.so' does not exist

3. Are there any v4 equivalents for any of the following configure options from v3?






FWIW, I'm building on samba 4.2.3 on Ubuntu x64 15.04.

Also, in case it's helpful, here's what we're currently doing to build v3:
