Sorry, John, I didn't (knowingly) keep the output from the build.  I 
recall that it was a UBIQX-related file.

After unzipping the sources, I merely ran the SETUP_SAMBA_VMS_BUILD 
procedure.  If I did any more than that, I didn't save it, nor do I 
recall.  I wan't planning on doing it twice in the event of a failure.

Surely, someone here on the list is running 2.0.6 as a WINS server. 
 Speak up folks!  What did you have to do to get it working?  Anything? 
 Did you use Craig Barry's PERLBUILD package, or roll your own?

Thanks for your trouble, John, but it just doesn't seem worth it to fool 
with WINS much longer.  I do have a hobbyist system after all with only 
3 nodes on the LAN.  It would have been nice to have things running as 
well as they possibly could, but it's not necessary to get files from 
here to there and back again.  Maybe I'll try again when Craig Barry 
puts out a newer version of his build.

Kindest regards,
