Hmmm, Well I looked at it a bit, and I don't think that Files is actually
accessed by SWAT, but some of the .objs linked need it.

This brings up the issue (that Dan brought up). Samba is a bit if a mess!

There should be libraries that we can link against.  However, I know that
this is going to be a lot of work.  Maybe we should ask the team to attack
this prior to 2.0 being done.
