This is also out of date then.

OK, On OpenVMS, if I have to vfork() a child, the child must start at 
main() and set everything up from there.

So it looks like I would need a method of passing the contents of the 
child structure to the new process/image after it was activated, and 
something that would do initialization tasks of main() in winbindd, but 
then set up a winbindd_child structure from the parent, and then jump to 
the child code in winbindd_dual.

Any tips?
