There might be. You probably want to send this message to the Samba list
to get more info.

Well, it looks like the instructions for building shared libraries under
AIX are not quite right.

This message means much the same as the one above.

You could try disabling libsmbclient if you are not using it.

In that case I suggest you hire someone who has experience with AIX and
possibly Samba. Complaining to us is not going to help ... In any event,
anyone who helps will probably need more information unless they have
encountered this problem before.
