Hello users,

I'm new to this list, so forgive me if this has been diskussed before.

I'm trying to compile samba 2.2.5 on a Alpha box with Tru64UNIX v4.0f patchkit
6. configure went ok. While running (gnu)make I get a warning. I do not exactly
know what this means and want to clarify what to do.

The config line is:
./configure  --prefix=/usr/local/opt/samba --exec-prefix=/usr/local \
             --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var/log/samba \
             --infodir=/usr/local/share/info --mandir=/usr/local/share/man \
             --with-privatedir=/usr/local/opt/samba/private \
             --with-lockdir=/var/locks/samba \
             --with-swatdir=/usr/local/opt/samba/swat --with-configdir=/etc \
             --with-codepagedir=/usr/local/opt/samba/codepages --with-syslog \

with setting CC="cc -std"

The compiler warning is:
cc: Info: include/includes.h, line 1080: In this statement, the declaration for
intrinsic function "snprintf" referenced at line number 595 in file
smbd/server.c, parameter number 2 is of type "unsigned long", which is not
consistent with the expected type "long".  It will be treated as an ordinary
external function. (intrinsicdecl)
int snprintf(char *,size_t ,const char *, ...) PRINTF_ATTRIBUTE(3,4);

I suspect this means, there are a declaration for snprintf and a function call
that are different in parameter description. Since I compiled-2.2.3a
successfully I didn't expect any warnings for 2.2.5. I compared samba-2.2.3a
lib/snprintf with samba-2.2.5 lib/snprintf and noticed they are different. I
searched for snprintf to be part of Tru64 base system but the search didn't show
up any results.

Any pointers appreciated.
