Sorry to interject; I've checked google looking for the solution to this 
problem and it's apparently been happening since 1999 or so... I believe 
there's a solution somewhere...

I'm running a Slackware 8.0 box, and am trying to compile Samba either 2.2.3 
or 2.2.2; and at the end of the ./configure command, it dies with this error:

checking whether to support ACLs... no
checking whether to build winbind... no, no unix domain socket support on 
checking configure summary
WARNING: No automated network interface determination
ERROR: no seteuid method available
configure: error: summary failure. Aborting config

(I've tried with both 2.2.2 and 2.2.3)  

What is it asking for (this "automated network interface determination") and 
why is it complaining about no seteuid method?  How do I fix it?
