Ive been using samba with Ultrix 4.4 for some time, and I think it was
running when we had 4.2.  Im using samba 1.9.15p3, and from my notes all I
needed to do to build it was:

1) Change the location of the man pages from usr/local/man to 
/usr/man to work better with the Ultrix man program.

# *JGM* MANDIR = /usr/local/man 
MANDIR = /usr/man

2) Change the default shell from sh to sh5.

# *JGM* SHELL = /bin/sh
SHELL = /bin/sh5

3) Uncomment the lines that define the build to be for Ultrix. 

We use it to access the 5000 from Win95, WinNT and WfWg machines.
