This isn't really a response to David's posting, but I'm not sure where
else to report this, so...
Configuring and making this alpha on an HPUX 10.20 box (a 9000/715), I
had a couple of notes:
- the resulting Makefile doesn't have an important flag for the HP ANSI
compiler; the initial value for CFLAGS is only "-g", but should
include "-Ae" to enable the ANSI features (this is equivalent to using
"-Aa -D_HPUX_SOURCE"). As I found later, this should be set in the
environment, but anyone else on an HP box should be so warned...
- there was a lone warning during the make:
cc: "lib/netmask.c", line 317: warning 618: Declaration of "in_addr" not
visible outside this function prototype scope.
Otherwise, everything seems to make okay. So far.
- when starting, both daemons start and then poop out with similar log
messages, this one for smbd:
[1998/08/31 18:32:31, 1] smbd/server.c:(630)
smbd version 2.0.0-prealpha started.

[1998/08/31 18:32:32, 0] lib/pidfile.c:(82)
ERROR: smbd : fcntl lock of file /products/samba/var/locks/smbd.pid
failed. Error was No such file or directory
However, both smbd.pid and nmbd.pid *do* exist. They are both
zero-sized files, but with different permissions:
-rw------- 1 root sys 0 Aug 31 17:09 nmbd.pid
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Aug 31 17:09 smbd.pid
Both the nmbd and smbd errors are for the same line in pidfile.c.
For the last few releases, Samba has be a nobrainer to make and install;
I guess I just got spoiled. Since neither daemon will run, I can't give
any more diagnostics. <sigh>

Avoid loud & aggressive persons, they are vexatious to the spirit.
