[Samba] Getting winbindd working on Solaris

winbind does not work on solaris.  Solaris does not like having winbind in
/etc/nsswitch.conf.  It also does not display all domains.  You can do some
work around stuff for this, but the work arounds are not great.  For
example, you can put another passwd command that is really a script in your
path prior to the real passwd command and have it move aside the
nsswitch.conf with winbind in it and replace it with one that does not.
After it changes the passwd, it would move the nsswitch.conf with winbind in
it back in place.  This is, technically speaking, yucky.  For the group
scenario, you would have to make special small groups on the nt server for
whatever you are sharing until somebody can figure out why it is not
displaying all groups and fix it.

If someone has already got winbindd running on a solaris 8 system could they

let myself and others the setting they have changed since the samba doc is 
really talking about linux.
