A co-worker of mine (Cliff Green <green at UMDNJ.EDU>) managed to get this
thing to build. What he changed to get it to do so is the following:


Change all of the references to "<module>.so" to "<module>.$SHLIBEXT."
This, to me, seems to be common sense. Anyone know why this wasn't done?
(Particularly, PAM_MOD="bin/pam_smbpass.so")


Once this is generated, comment out the DYNEXP line:


...this could obviously be done in configure too. This is correct syntax,
so this seems to be more of an HP bug. Don't know WHY there is a problem
with this syntax, be it an 11i bug or a compiler bug in my version of the


My environment is: HP-UX beta B.11.11 U 9000/887 (a 32-bit G70 server)

...the compilers that are on the machine are 12/01 as far as I can recall.

Anyone have any insights into this? I figured it would be good to get the
info out there. I took these steps on both Samba 2.2.5 and 2.2.7a, but I
have no reason to believe it would work any differently on other recent
versions. I shall attempt to compile it, stock, on one of my 64-bit
N-class servers and see if it works right out of the box.
