That is what I expected.

At the time when you compiled Samba for the last time the Sys V semaphore
syscall was still supported. After a new syscall was invented the libc
and its headers were changed to use it. So recently compiled programs don't
need the emulation of the old syscall. Old programs however are not
affected by header changes and thus still use it.
