Problems after FreeBSD kernel rebuild

Hi all,

My problem is this - I rebuilt my FreeBSD server's kernel for a 
number of reasons.  After doing so, I found that smbd wouldn't start 
(I start it from inetd but it won't start as a daemon from the 
command line, either).  Looking at the log file, I got the following:

[1999/09/28 10:14:55, 1] smbd/server.c:main(628)
   smbd version 2.0.5a started.
   Copyright Andrew Tridgell 1992-1998
[1999/09/28 10:14:55, 1] smbd/files.c:file_init(216)
   file_init: Information only: requested 10000 open files, 1054 are available.
[1999/09/28 10:14:55, 0] lib/util_sock.c:open_socket_in(886)
   bind failed on port 139 socket_addr= (Address already in use)

Why would smbd think for any reason that the machine is  Is 
that what this error report means?

Note that I replaced my custom kernel with the generic kernel and had 
no joy - same problem.  Samba is version 2.0.5a.

Somebody help, please!
