Well, I did install several versions of Samba on HP-UX 10.20 and  never
had a problem with that. It seems that compilation or execution of the
./source/tests/fcntl_lock.c file fails  during  configuration.

On  my  HP-UX  systems,  configure finds the necessary fcntl.h file in
/usr/include/sys. Does it exist on your system ?

What  C  compiler  are you using ? I use HP's unbundled C compiler. If
you  use  GNU  C,  have  you correctly installed it ? (ran fixinclude,
installed its own tree of .h files)

I see that fcntl_lock.c tries to lock a file it creates it the current
directory.  I  can  imagine  this  would  fail  if that directory is a
remotely mounted NFS directory hosted by a server  that  doesn't  have
the  lock  daemons  (rpc.lockd).  Could  it be your case ? try running
configure  in  a  Samba  source  tree  *local*  to your HP-UX machine.

    I've RTFMed. It says: "Refer to your system administrator"
            But... I *am* the system administrator :-]
