I will give that I try.

After looking at your configure command, I had another try at compiling
Samba 3.4.8 with GCC (Sunfreeware GCC3 or Blastwave GCC4.)

Setting "--enable-shared" or "--enable-shared=yes" had caused
problems. I think in this case I had not specified
"--with-shared-modules=...." Setting "--enable-shared=no" would then
cause "--with-shared-modules" statement to be ignored.

Setting "--enable-shared=yes --with-shared-modules=....." was OK. I
try to add one option at a time to configure to try to isolate which was
the problem, but in this case it looked like it was a matter of the
appropriate combination. Adding "--with-pam=yes" fixes the "make
nsswitch" problem.

I am using sunfreeware open ldap and Solaris kerberos. The solaris ldap
client lacks the functionality required for Active Directory support
(not that I need it at the moment.)

I have the sunfreeware versions of swing, binutils, libiconv, libintl,
libtool gcc, openldap, swig etc installed. I symlinked bash rather
than installing the sunfreeware version. Sunfreware libtool has the
bash path hard coded. I was using the sun version of python (2.4.)

--with-acl support is enabled by default.

I notice that I had a typo in the "--with-shared-modules" ("modules="
which seems to have been ignored by configure.

If I added "--enable-shared=vfs_zfsacl" that was also ignored. But I
had added that by mistake in the past to try to get zfsacl to build and
hadn't realized the syntax was wrong.

The following is the working configuration (including a typo that was

# ls -l /usr/ccs/bin/ld
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 17 May 24 22:22 /usr/ccs/bin/ld ->
# ls -l /usr/local/bin/bash
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 May 13 16:42
/usr/local/bin/bash -> /usr/bin/bash

CPPFLAGS="-I /usr/local/include -I/usr/local/ssl/include -I/usr/include"
CPPFLAGS="-I /usr/local/samba-3.4.8-x32/include $CPPFLAGS"
LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/ssl/lib -R/usr/local/ssl/lib \
  -L/usr/local/lib -R/usr/local/lib -L/usr/lib -R/usr/lib"
-R/usr/local/samba-3.4.8-x32/lib $LDFLAGS"
export LDFLAGS
export PATH

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/samba-3.4.8-x32 \
--with-privatedir=/etc/samba/private \
--with-lockdir=/var/samba/locks \
--with-configdir=/etc/samba \
--with-wbclient=yes \
--with-winbind=yes \
--with-libtalloc=yes \
--with-libtdb=yes \
--with-ads=yes \
--with-ldap=yes \
--with-krb5=/usr \
--with-pam=yes \
--enable-nss-wrapper=yes \
--enable-shared-libs=yes \
--enable-shared=yes \

Thanks again for your help.
