That works for the build, but fails later override_dh_auto_install
when d/rules does this:
        dh_auto_install -- --no-source
        # run go generate to install assets, but don’t regenerate them
generate -tags tools $(GOFLAGS) ./...

# run go generate to install assets, but don’t regenerate them
go generate -tags tools
--mod=vendor -buildmode=pie ./...
# github.com/mvo5/libsmbclient-go

I'm not sure what this step is doing, but it looks like the lfs flags
are lost. My other approach (with CFO_FLAGS) worked.

Isn't there a place in the golang buildsystem to inject this $(getconf
LFS_CFLASG)? Imagine users who just git clone that repo and build
adsys manually on armhf, against upstream samba (without the LFS patch
in libsmbclient.h). They would get a build with a 32bit off_t type
which would be broken. A plain upstream samba build will expect an
off_t of 64 bits[1].

Given [1], that samba will always be built with LFS, then I think the
LFS_CFLAGS change should be in adsys, somewhere in their build system.
