Use the following instructions to build the libraries and the binaries.
+sssd depends on 4 libraries originated in the samba project:
+talloc, tdb, tevent, ldb
+They are now available in major distribution development branches.

NOTE: these instructions are temporary and will most likely change agt some
point but so far the process I describe here is the best one to get something up
and working while developing this project.
