[PATCH] Always build winbindd, always build nss_winbind

It works on Illumos (Tested on OmniOS).  If you are going in, please
switch the library name from "libnss_winbind.so.2" to
"nss_winbind.so.1"  That's what Solaris/illumos users will expect.

(I verified things are working with truss.  I don't have it setup in a
true AD environment.)

As far as autoconf, if the goal was to remove --with-winbind it works,
but I don't know if users are using the lack of that switch.
