I have some question regarding the installation of Samba i a Spar Sun Solaris 8 machine.

First alternative:

1) I start with the download of the file samba-latest.tar.gz.

2) The second step is > gunzip -vf samba-latest.tar.gz. 

3) After that > tar  -xvf samba-latest.tar. 
 Att this point everything is OK.

4) Next step is > cd samba.2.2.4/source

5) the next step is >./configure . Thisis the step that does not work. I get thoses erros :

loading cache ./config.cache
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether the C compiler (gcc -O  ) works... no
configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler cannot create executables.

I seems tha I have some wrong configuration in my machine.

Second Alternative:

1) Downloading of the file samba-2.2.4-sparc-solaris-2.8.pkg.gz.

2) > cp samba-2.2.4-sparc-solaris-2.8.pkg.gz samba-2.2.4-sparc-solaris-2.8.pkg

3) > pkgadd -d  samba-2.2.4-sparc-solaris-2.8.pkg. All seems be installed.

Untill now everything is Ok.

And I 

start nmbd  OK
start smbd  Not OK

-----Why I can not start smbd?

I appreciate your answers.
