Hi everybody.

I am trying to set up winbind (2.2.4; debian) but if I do configure with these options
I get the following errormessage:

#! /bin/sh

./configure \
    --with-swatdir=/usr/share/swat \
    --prefix=/usr \
    --bindir=/usr/bin \
    --sbindir=/usr/sbin \

I already tried some other additional parameters (like 'included popt'
and 'tdbsam' or 'ldapsam') but also without
success. Unfortunateley I've got no time to browse through the
archives and all infos on google did not help really.

So, does anyone know how to get rid of this error and get samba
configured? Without the "--with-pam" set, everything works fine!!

BYTW: I cannot figure out which files in /etc/pam.d/ I should edit (if
I should finally get it compiled). All of them? Or just the "login"
and "others"? I have seen a solution suggesting a new file, named
"samba". Is this right? If not, should I really replace the entries in
given in the existing files? I doubt normal login would then still

Thanx a lot
