Based upon the message that you received, it's safe to say that you:

a) Don't have a c compiler installed on your system, which is required to
compile Samba
b) Don't have your c compiler listed in your path.

To determine which one of these is the case, bring up a console while logged

their exact locations on your hard drive, and add the directory to your

If you don't get any results back that are either "cc" or "gcc", then you
must obtain a C compiler. Sun used to charge for theirs, and they probably
still do. You can obtain gcc for free at, but I've never
installed it on Solaris. It should just be a matter of finding a copy of gcc
packaged for Sun systems. Sun may have a copy available at their site, but
I'm too lazy (too tired?), to check. HTH.
