[Samba] A small problem for samba on Solaris+gcc

Hi all,
I am building samba-2.2.4 on Solaris 8 (Intel) with gcc-2.95.3, not 
Sun compiler. I have noticed that it tries to build winbind nss libs 
using -KPIC instead of -fPIC (which is the correct for my conf). It 
looks like configure overlooked the fact that I have gcc and assumed 
that all solaris boxes would use Sun compiler. I managed to compile 
them by substituting -fPIC for -KPIC in the Makefile after running 
configure, but that leaves the annoying message that I must run 
autoconf... Could someone fix this? I guess I can make it, it doesn't 
look that difficult, but I am short of time right now and that would 
take me some time.

P.S.: BTW, does samba-2.2.4 build correctly with openssl-0.9.6d? I 
got some obscure errors in configure when trying to enable it.
