Smbd won't bind - any clues?

Hi folks,

I'm trying to help a fellow sysadmin configure Samba on his DG/UX 

He's installed 2.0.5a, and everything seemed to go well in the configure 
and make stages.

However, when he tries to start 'smbd' by hand he gets the errors below.

Our machine is binary compatible with his, and I sent him my copy of 
smbd (from version 2.0.3), but it made no difference.  I had no trouble 
installing and configuring the copy here, so I'm not sure what he's done 
wrong (if anything).

Testparm doesn't show any errors, but test 3 in the diagnosis.txt gives a 
"could not connect" message (or something similar).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
