Three things:
1) would you share your build notes with me (v. 4.10.0 on Ubuntu 18.04)?
2) do you have any insight re: the version expected to have the 'make test' fix (earlier question above directed to Andrew)?
3) can you provide any insights on pros/cons of configuring as default vs. configuring with fhs when building on Ubuntu 18.04? I note (a) with respect to default, your comment regarding Ubuntu still expecting some distro packages and (b) that you and Louis both seem to configure fhs. On the other hand, it seems that there is more to the fhs configuration, e.g. the "backport" requirements. Would appreciate some more in-depth discussion of these particular considerations and concomitant issues (either here or in a further/follow up to you previous answer to https://lists.samba.org/archive/samba/2019-April/222172.html ).
Thank you, as always
