Wanting to run a UNIX command on Windows shared files

Thank you for the answer.

The 'smbsh' command was not in my Samba package, so I decided to install GCC
2.95.3 and to download Samba 2.2.2 sources to have it compiled using the
'--with-smbwrapper' option. I'm not a programmer and I spent many hours to
debug the installation of GCC (many thanks to Internet and guys like you
that help on mailing lists and newsgroups).

Late in the night, I got GCC to work and started the 'make' of binaries of
Samba, using this command line (see the 'Makefile' file attached):

'./configure --prefix=/opt/samba
--with-privatedir=/opt/samba/private --with-lockdir=/opt/samba/var/locks
--with-swatdir=/opt/samba/swat --with-configdir=/opt/samba/lib
--with-codepagedir=/opt/samba/lib/codepages --with-smbwrapper'

After at least one hour of compilation, the whole process crashed returning
these messages (the whole output of the 'make' process lies in the log file

	=============== CUT ================
	Linking shared library bin/smbwrapper.so
	ld: fatal: option -h and building a dynamic executable are
	ld: fatal: Flags processing errors
	*** Error code 1
	make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `bin/smbwrapper.so'

	=========== END OF LOG =============

As stated earlier, I'm not really a programmer and I don't know where to
look and what to do. Would someone have any tips to get out of this dead

You may want to have a look at smbsh. The manpage is in the tarball 
in docs/manpages. smbsh is not build by default, but with a certain 
configure option.
