Add -lsendfile for sendfile()

On Solaris 10/11, use of sendfile() in source3/lib/sendfile.c requires -lsendfile. From sendfile(3):
     sendfile - send files over sockets or copy files to files

     cc [ flag... ] file... -lsendfile [ library... ]
     #include <sys/sendfile.h>

     ssize_t sendfile(int out_fd, int in_fd, off_t *off, size_t len);

Building source3/lib/sendfile.c for samba3util is done in source3/wscript_build. It seems this would be the ideal place to add -lsendfile. How is this done only for samba3util? I modified lib/replace/wscript to add -lsendfile but that is done for every shared library, something that seems less than ideal.

this is fixed already:

so I think, this is not a problem any more. You should use a more modern Samba version or backport that fix to your old version if you want to stick with that.
