Thanks for the fix, but we try not to add platform-specific
#defines into the Samba code.

What might work better is a :

#if defined(SHA_NEEDS_RENAME)

change here, and add some code to detect if the SHA256_Update()
function is detected in libc on NetBSD and then define SHA_NEEDS_RENAME
if so.

Do you know how to do this, or do you need some help working with
our build system ?
