My apologies if this isn't the correct posting address -- I didn't see
an obvious "report problems here" on the website.  Some of the code
modifications introduced between 2.2.7 and 2.2.8 don't appear to agree
with Solaris, using Sun's CC, with the LDAP support code.  Note that
I'm linking against the Solaris-bundled LDAP package (SUNWlldap).

While this worked fine for 2.2.7, using '--with-ldapsam' yields the
following fatal error.

|Compiling passdb/pdb_ldap.c

Re-configuring without '--with-ldapsam' allows the build to complete,
albeit with a fair number more compiler warnings then with 2.2.7.  

Thanks much for any help you can provide.


PS.  On a related note, it doesn't appear possible to build Samba with
     support for more than one potential SAM source.  I'd like one
     build to support both /etc/smbpasswd and LDAP-SAM, with config
     file options specifying which source.  Did I miss some
     compile-time option?  Thanks.
