Really simple development question

Of course after about 2 hours of working on this, I e-mailed the list.
And of course 20 minutes (and one cup of coffee) after sending
the e-mail, I just figured "maybe I'll take another look at the Makefile".
I copied the smbstatus sections, change then names and it worked...D'oh!.

Anyway, thank you very much for your help & quick response.
