I am compiling 2.2.8 on a Caldera Openlinux box that was running 2.0.5 or 
some such. It already has a working config and uses samba.d dirs for it's 



During compile I use following switches


However the pid files are ending up in /var/run/samba instead of 

The only other thing I can think might affect this is the --localstatedir. My 
./configure line is as follows:

    ./configure --with-fhs --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --with-
    lockdir=/var/lock/samba.d --with-piddir=/var/lock/samba.d --with-
    confdir=/etc/samba.d --with-codepagedir=/etc/samba.d/codepages --with-
    logfilebase=/var/log/samba.d --with-syslog --localstatedir=/var --with-
