rpcclient $> adddriver "Windows NT 
write_socket(4,106) wrote 106

It's probably no coincidence that the first 106 bytes ends right where
the dependent files start... rpcclient/samba is ignoring all the
dependent files?  First 106 of the above string are:
adddriver "Windows NT x86"

This is the rpcclient provided in samba-client-3.0.0-12rc4.3E (RH EL3
beta) for s390.

Please help,
~ Daniel
