Samba is designed to run on Unix. Posix in particular. The fact that
Olaf is able to do an Amiga port of Samba *without* using the Unix
emulation library is a testament to his abilities as a programmer.
I have met Olaf, and I like him a lot. I am planning on working with him
when he does the next Amiga port. Any clear bug-fixes he puts out will be
moved back into the main tree. Simple fixes to improve portability will
also go. Anything more complex than that will require discussion.
