No disagreement, except ...

* that I did not understand this error message.

* I was taken by surprise, because both a preceeding scratch built and a 
preceeding local mock-build did not exhibit this bug. Only the "final 
built" has exhibited this error.

* There had been other attempts by other people to rebuild samba4 which 
had failed with a similar error.

The work around was what Mamoru said.
