SAMBA 2.0.7 Compiling Err in UNIX

I have downloaded samba-latest.tar and extracted it into my SunSPARCstation
5 (Kernel version is SunOS Release 5.5.1 version Generic_103640-29)
/work1/samba directory.

I logged in as su and then run the program ./configure under
/work1/samba/samba-2.0.7/source.  The config status shows OK.
Under the same location, I type 'make' to create the binaries.  But I
received the following err report:-
Compiling smbd/server.c
Compiling smbd/files.c
Compiling smbd/chgpasswd.c
Compiling smbd/connection.c
Compiling smbd/dfree.c
Compiling smbd/dir.c
Compiling smbd/password.c
smbd/password.c: In function `authorise_login':
smbd/password.c:733: warning: initialization makes pointer from integer
without a cast
Compiling smbd/conn.c
Compiling smbd/fileio.c
Compiling smbd/ipc.c
smbd/ipc.c: In function `package':
smbd/ipc.c:359: `__builtin_va_alist' undeclared (first use this function)
smbd/ipc.c:359: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
smbd/ipc.c:359: for each function it appears in.)
make: *** [smbd/ipc.o] Error 1

NOTE: I noticed that the base directory and prefix path are all set to
/usr/local/samba and as a matter of fact, I don't hv the rights to create a
new directory under /usr/local/.. either with the su or my own login name.
So, would that be a problem.  Anyway, it doesn't work either when I
pointing the base directory and prefix path to a location where I have
granted full access rights.

I have tried version 2.0.6 and getting the same err as above.

I'm desperately wanted to know what went wrong?  Any input from your side
is very much appreciated.

With Regards
