winbind on Solaris

There appears to be a slight library dependancy problem with the winbind nss
modules on Solaris.  Not all nss client programs explicitly link the socket
library, so subsequently fail with loader errors when using winbind.
Examples of this are chmod, chown etc...

Adding the socket library etc to the link appears to do
the trick thus...
