First of all, thank you very much for your fast
answers. Congratulations, samba is a great product.

This is possibly a newbie question, but I am not
able to compile samba-2.2.8 with libcups support.
>From the options that appear running "./configure --help",
only "--enable-cups" seems to be related to the problem.
However, after compilation the "smbd" executable is
not linked with libcups.

# ./configure --enable-cups
# make
# ldd /usr/local/samba-2.2.8-source/source/bin/smbd 
        libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0x4001b000)
        libnsl.so.1 => /lib/libnsl.so.1 (0x4001e000)
        libcrypt.so.1 => /lib/libcrypt.so.1 (0x40033000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x40060000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x40000000)

The library is installed in my system:

# find /usr/lib -name "libcups*" -print

What configure options must I use?
Any help or reference to a document that explains
the process would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
