I did after this and ran ldconfig for my linux box.  I can't seem to get it
to work on solaris.  I am not real sure where to put the library (I think
/lib is fine) and what to run as an alternative to ldconfig on solaris.  I
tried some form of crle and see the so file cached, but getent passwd still
does not return anything.

Did you install the libnss_winbind.so library?  It is required
for a working winbind installation in the current release :-(
