I think the biggest thing I had to wrap around #ifdef's 
were the kernel_stat parts and the stat family of functions.

I would hate to feel so silly that you just added some
autoconf tests and then it just worked fine under Solaris 2.6 :)

I'm currently LD_PRELOADing lib{socket,nsl} ... I suppose 
linking it in would be slicker :)

smbclient seems to do fine without it; I agree that
should try to do the same thing.

I'm still having some trouble chdir()'ing into the /smb hierarchy.
I cd to /smb but ls is getting _readdir64.

With all the success people seem to be having under 2.5, I suppose 
I'll get another cvs update and see what other changes have been
