Hi, Tim,

I am doing cross-compiling here. However, it is working fine with samba
2.2 version.

You mentioned that Samba doesn't really support cross-compilation. Is it
only for samba 3?

Are you actually cross-compiling here, or does this error appear when
compiling on a ppc machine?  Samba doesn't really support
cross-compilation despite some of the cross compiling macros being used
in the configure script.
