[Samba] Successfuly Building Samba 2.2.X under HP-UX 11i with gcc

Here is my solution to building samba 2.2.3a and 2.2.8a  under HP-UX 11i.
The compilers used are gcc-2.95.3 (fixed for HP-Ux 11i) and gcc-3.1.1.

Compilations fail because the C headers have changed and cause previously
successful ANSI compilations to fail.
This causes configure to fail to detect the /usr/include/shadow.h and the
make to fail at ~/samba-2.2.8a/passdb/pass_check.c.
The HP ANSI C compiler does not flag an error because it compiles ANSI mode
with HP extensions.

The fix is simply to add the -traditional-cpp switch to the CFLAGS
environment variable before configuring and compiling as shown below:

	setenv CFLAGS "-O2 -traditional-cpp"

Hope this helps.
