Andrew Bartlett answered this on the mailing list when discussing a similar issue:

So reporters, did you all make sure that you have no outdated packages installed (talloc, tdb, ldb...)? If no we need to analyse this further.

My test was with Fedora 15 installed with desktop and all the latest updates. My Fedora 15 x64 server also is fully up to date, with a complete development environment installed and still gives the same errors on compiling Samba. It's therefore definitely not a case of outdated packages.
It would be interesting to see a list of required packages. Instead of Samba skipping things because the required packages are not installed, I would prefer to simply install those required packages.

Please retry with current git, as this may have just been an smbd bug, shown up due the the particular circumstances in which this was run.

A fix for a very similar issue is in the tree now as 

Sorry for the bother!
Comment 7 Martijn de Jong 2011-10-30 12:27:26 UTC
That did the trick. Make quicktest now finishes with All Ok. Thanks!
Comment 8 Matthias Dieter Wallnöfer 2011-11-02 15:43:06 UTC
Marking as "FIXED". If the problem or part of it persists please reopen.
