Problems with CVS / 2.1.0 preaplpha on Redhat 6.1

Dear All

Firstly Thanks to the Samba team for a great application - our samba
servers are greate and very stable!

Secoundly I am new to the list - so if I am asking in the wrong place
please point me in the right direction.

I have used Samba 2.0.x for some time as a Win 9.x server etc...

My boss now wants to use the PDC features of 2.1.0 prealpha -
specifically the domain logons for NT 4.0 clients.  We then wish to move
the roving profiles onto the samba box.

I have tried to compile a CVS snapshot - yet the ./configure fails with
the following errors:

checking if large file support can be enabled
checking configure summary
WARNING: No automated network interface determination
ERROR: no seteuid method available
configure: error: summary failure. Aborting config

I am using the pgcc compiler with: gcc -O6 -mcpu=pentium -march=pentium
-fomit-frame-pointer -fno-exceptions -malign-double - although this
complies a 2.0.6 set-up ok!

A CVS snapshot from Saturday complies with a few warnings, and then smbd
and SWAT fail to work - in the smb.log appears to start smbd, yet when
trying to browse / use a share the following error(s) is seen:

[root at duck2 greg]# ../bin/smbclient -L duck -U root
Added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
Got a positive name query response from ( )
failed session setup
failed session setup

The root user / smb.conf file and smbpassword file all work under a
2.0.6 install!

I am not a C expert and I have had a good read of all the documentation
/ mailing list archives yet cannot find any pointers.

IS CVS broken or am I being thick ?

Are we being premature and should we wait for the official 2.1 ?

Any ideas help would be greatly appreciated
