This is something that Louis will have to fix, but I cannot really see 
the need to use such a script. By using Louis's script, you are 
dependant on him keeping it up to date, and when it isn't, you get 
problems like this, which may get worse as 4.3.2 is due out on Tuesday :-)

You will probably be better off compiling Samba yourself by following 
the wiki. You can then easily update to a new version when it comes out. 
You will also find that all the examples on the wiki will be valid, no 
need to alter paths etc.

If you must use a script, write your own, after all, a script is mostly 
just a list of the commands you would enter one after another.
