There are no occurences of "new" or "class" in any of the header
files in nsswitch. Can you be a bit more precise about the error
you are getting here?
I (or someone) really needs to write a much nicer client
interface to winbind that you can link in to your funky programs
without having to pull in too many header files and so on. It's
a bit ad-hoc at the moment.

libsmbclient and winbind should be completely separate
libraries. I don't think the interact at all.
