[Samba] AIX 5L and Samba Winbind

I'm trying to authenticate NT Users when they log in to an AIX 5L 
machine against the NT Domain passwords on the windows based PDC. So I 
want to have no users or passwords on the AIX system itself. The only 
thing is to rexec a command on the AIX system with the NT users account.

Using Samba/WINBIND 3.0rc3 version compiled with a gcc 2.9.5 on the AIX 
system and WINBIND copied to /usr/lib/security
I made the following config entries:
in /etc/security/user:
default:    auth1 = SYSTEM

in /usr/lib/security:
	program = /usr/lib/security/WINBIND
	option = authonly

The rexecd seems to have no pam support compiled in. I don't know if 
this is necessary with this configuration.

Has anybody tried to get the Samba/Winbind authentication working on 
AIX 5.1, 5.2 (5L) ? Any hints are welcome.
