Don't give Redhat that much credit - all the rpm is is a wrapper around make
commands :-)

The RPM generated is IDENTICAL to that I can do by hand - it's the same
commands. The configure options used are basically identical to those in the
2.0.7 builds - so the question remains: why does 2.20 run differently that
2.07 WRT the **REQUIREMENT** of smbpasswd? 

I mean - is no-one else seeing this??? Or does everyone else use smbpasswd
and don't bother talking to NT domain controllers? (I think not).
