Thanks, I will test that tomorrow.  Because I do not yet have RSYNC 
fully functional, I get the SAMBA4 source updates at midnight through a 
cron job on a LINUX system.

The timing is good, as OpenVMS requires Perl 5.9.3 Patch 25801 or later 
to actually run the SAMBA 4 perl scripts at the configure step, and that 
change just showed up yesterday evening. :-)

Now to see if I can make something.
