I've also run into this problem after upgrading libraries on my RedHat system.
RH6.0 does use glibc 2.1, and it looks like Samba's configure scripts don't
know how to deal with this case yet...  Is someone working on making Samba and
glibc 2.1 play nicely? (i.e., how short is that 'short while'? :)  I'd be
willing to help (I /was/ planning on using smbsh from this system before I
broke it...), but am certain that I would break the build for other systems
in the process if left to my own devices.
