Well, I must admit that I had similar problems to you when building the same
package on the Intel/Potato machine. I have Intel/Woody here so it just
installed without a build. Basically what I did was compare my *dev* entries
on my successful Alpha/Potato with that of my Intel/Potato and installed the
difference. Then the samba package built fine. What I can say for sure is
the 2.2.0.final.a samba source is running on all my machines now without a
hitch and I had to build them for the potato machines. In the case of my
over-simplified e-mail from before, my Alpha/Potato machine just happened to
have all the right packages already loaded. There is no dependency built
in to a source package.
