These are private libraries - they're not supposed to be used

If there are symbols you need, they should be made available from the
public libraries that live in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu. The names of
the libraries in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/samba or their ABIs may
change at any time; please rely on them.
