My requirement is very simple:

Go to an arbitrary default Solaris/AIX/Whatever box (Solaris
is most popular for me), download samba-latest.tar.gz, type
in ./configure;make and get a (possibly not fancy) smbd.

I personally am not really concerned about tdb as a separate
package, so I should probably not have stepped into the
discussion at this point. Sorry for that.
