32-bit and 64-bit nss_winbind.so on Solaris 10

I've successfully compiled 32-bit and 64-bit executables of 
Samba-3.0.20b on my Solaris 10 box.

I plan to use winbindd to allow Windows AD users to log on my Solaris 10 

For testing, I've compiled a 64-bit version of the "getent" utility from 
the sources available from opensolaris.org since the getent utility that 
ships with Solaris 10 is only a 32-bit executable.

Unfortunately, when I'm running the 32-bit Samba, only the 32-bit getent 
can see the Windows users, and when I'm running the 64-bit Samba, only 
the 64-bit getent can see them.

The 32-bit and the 64-bit Samba live in different directory trees.
Simply using the 32-bit nss_winbind.so with the 64-bit Samba doesn't 
work, and using the 64-bit nss_winbind.so with the 32-bit Samba doesn't 
work either.

Running a 32-bit winbindd and a 64-bit winbindd simultaneously also 
doesn't solve the problem (overlap in /tmp/.winbindd/pipe ?).

Any ideas how I could get this to work?

Thanks in advance!
