Thanks. One question, though:

I checked yesterday that indeed samba 3.4.3  could be compiled with
talloc 1.2.0 (the version in lenny) while 3.4.5 fails at the configure
step (saying that talloc isn't here).

From my limited abilities to understand autostuff, it seems that the
test checks for talloc version to be above 1.3.0:

if test "x$enable_external_libtalloc" != xno
	PKG_CHECK_MODULES(TALLOC, talloc >= 1.3.0, 
		[ enable_external_libtalloc=yes ],
		[ if test "x$enable_external_libtalloc" = xyes; then
		 	AC_MSG_ERROR([Unable to find libtalloc])

So, it seems fair that the test fails when talloc is 1.2.0. But why
the hell, doesn't it fail when I compile samba 3.4.3 while it fails
when compiling 3.4.5?

This apparently requires us to raise the build dependency we currently
have on libtalloc-dev, even in unstable, which is why I ask around.
