samba-4.4.3/bin/config.log (gzipped)

After some tweaking, I got samba configuring correctly for cross compile using --cross-answers. 

Unfortunately samba fails to compile correctly and fails with 

/bin/sh: /builddir/samba-4.4.3/bin/asn1_compile: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error
/bin/sh: /builddir/samba-4.4.3/bin/asn1_compile: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error
/bin/sh: /builddir/samba-4.4.3/bin/asn1_compile: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error
Waf: Leaving directory `/builddir/samba-4.4.3/bin'
Build failed:

	{task: HEIMDAL_GSSAPI_ASN1_ASN1 gssapi.asn1 -> asn1_gssapi_asn1.x,gssapi_asn1.hx,gssapi_asn1-priv.hx}

If I understand correctly in source4/heimdal_build/wscript_build line 914 the build system is told to build ans1_compile with "use_hostcc" but it looks like this option is ignored.

Trying to compile samba 4.4.3 with Debian 8 jessie and all test are OK, but first fails 
# smbclient -L localhost -U%
Domain=[SAMDOM] OS=[Windows 6.1] Server=[Samba 4.4.3]

With 4.4.2 seems to work

How can I solve?

That's a different issue, this is about _cross_ compiling

Ok, created a new bug https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11910
