With the v4-0-test branch of samba git, tevent only installs tevent.h (from tevent.mk). but samba (4.0.0alpha6 at least) requires tevent_util.h as well.
$ ./configure && make
../lib/tevent/pytevent.c:27:25: error: tevent_util.h: No such file or directory

Looks like this is looking specifically inside the git directory for tevent_util.h, but doesn't include -I../../lib/tevent.

For tevent to install tevent_util.h
This patch is for the future when samba4 builds using external libraries. With this patch, tevent now installs tevent_util.h which is required by samba4.
Just tried it with samba 4.0.0alpha6:
$ cd samba-4.0.0alpha6/source4
$ make -j3
May be another flag causing the issue, I'll try to narrow it down.
I found why it's working, I had tevent installed with my patch above. :) It appears samba4 *is* using the external tevent.
