I don't know how desirable this functionality is, but here's a patch that
uses DHCP to have Samba dynamically discover WINS servers to use (when
'wins server = dhcp' is specified in smb.conf). This can be a nice option
to have in some situations..

The patch (and included files) work with 2.0.10 and the 2.2 branch.
