Well, unless your systems are running drastically different version of Solaris 
or HP-UX, you should be able to compile samba once for each platform and then 
install it on all the systems.

What I routinely do is compile for Solaris, then install samba into an NFS 
filesystem so all systems mounting that filesystem can run the server, then 
make sure that each smb.conf file and all the logs etc. are local to each 
machine.  This way they can all share the same binary, etc. but have locally 
configured config files.  You should have no problem doing this for HP-UX 

The only reall snag is if your running a mix of SunOS and Solaris as well as 
old versions of HP-UX (like 9.x and 11.x).

	    Depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.
     There cannot be a crisis today; my schedule is already full.
  A conclusion is simply the place where you got tired of thinking.
	 If you're not having fun, you're not doing it right!
