We are using solaris 8 and have compiled Samba with GCC 3.02.

We used the compiler option -m64 and -L/usr/local/lib/sparcv9 to get a 64 bits version of 

( I placed those in the "CC = gcc " variable in the Makefile after a ./configure thus 
making it CC = gcc -m64 -L/usr/local/lib/sparcv9 )

This was done to make sure Solaris could use the /etc/system parameters:

set rlim_fd_max = 4096
set rlim_fd_cur = 2048

If we did not the 32 bits Samba would only be able to use 256 file descriptors even though 
the 'system' parameter was set to those above.

I am not sure if this is the correct way todo it, but it certainly solved our file descriptor
