Can someone do me a HUGE favor and let me know how they built the Samba 
2.2.8a  port ?  I'm running 2.2.7 right now.

When I tried upgrading to 2.2.8a, the make complained that my libtool is 
too old.  Well, my libtool current as of the FreeBSD ports tree - 
v1.3.  I've seen some activity on the ports mailing list that some folks 
are working on upgrading the libtool port to v1.4 which I assume is what 
Samba 2.2.8a is probably expecting.

I built subversion from scratch because of the libtool port issue but I'm 
kinda hoping to not have to do that with Samba.
