Problems after FreeBSD kernel rebuild

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.

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=0.0.0.0 (Address already in use)
Why would smbd think for any reason that the machine is 0.0.0.0? 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!
