The problem is in the Samba configure script.  When the gcc compiler is being
used under Solaris 2.6 or 7, the type of LFS is explicitly set.  Since I am
using a later version of gcc (2.95), the test is not doing the correct thing.
The solution is to modify "configure" before running it as follows:

# Defines needed for Solaris 2.6/2.7 aka 7.0 to make it admit
# to the existance of large files..
# Note that -D_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE is different from the Sun
# recommendations on large file support, however it makes the
# compile work using gcc 2.7 and 2.8, whereas using the Sun
# recommendation makes the compile fail on gcc2.7. JRA.

  case "$ac_cv_gcc_compiler_version_number" in
          *"gcc version 2.6"*|*"gcc version2.7"*)

  case "$ac_cv_gcc_compiler_version_number" in
          *"gcc version 2.6"*|*"gcc version2.7"*|*"gcc version 2.95"*)
