if you compile 1.9.18 without -DNTDOMAIN, you will get what is the current
(real) 1.9.18 alpha version. 1.9.18 is in alpha, and will go into production
regardless of the #ifdef NTDOMAIN code in it, and so will future versions
until we are certain that the domain logon code is working.
1.9.18 and all future versions is / are just a "carrier" for the completely
independent (parallel) development of domain logon support.
once it is working, we will start a stable alpha series for it.

the #ifdef NTDOMAIN stuff is DCE/RPC. 95 doesn't support DCE/RPC, except
by being rewritten, under which circumstances it would be called NT.
i wouldn't use it yet in a production environment: there are a couple of
issues to resolve (incorrect passwords seem to stuff things. fine until
you get your password wrong by mistake!)
