Samba on Cygwin?

I'm trying to run some of the apps in source\bin (for example, smbtree)
under Cygwin. Has anyone tried/accomplished this before?
The only build issue was that source\tests\fcntl_lock.c failed during
configure. Seems that Cygwin doesn't support locking with fcntl()
(returns "not implemented"). So I faked that to get by configure and
the rest of the build worked fine (except some compiler warnings, which
I hope are normal).
Some things work. For example, ./nmblookup "*" behaves as expected.
But what I really want to work does not... I'm trying to use smbtree
but get no results. Debug output shows failures to open files in
/user/local/samba/var/locks - most likely due to fcntl() failures.
So, if there is any information about using samba under Cygwin or anyone
has any tips about the above issue I would appreciate the help.
