Multiple servers from single /usr/local

Dear Samba Users,
In the past, with Samba 1.9.18p10, I have handled running several Sun
SPARC/Solaris server boxes that share the same /usr/local/samba filesystem.
I did this by putting different configuration files in /usr/local/samba/lib.
For example: smb.conf.host1, smb.conf.host2, etc.
But, now with Samba-2.0.0, it didn't seem to work. My initial questions are:
1) There are now files nmbd.pid and smbd.pid in /usr/local/samba/var/locks
Wouldn't this prevent me from "sharing" the common /usr/local/samba?
2) Is there another way I can do this besides setting up completely different
/usr/local/samba/host1, /usr/local/samba/host2, etc. and compiling and
installing separately (using the --prefix configure option) for each host?
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!
