[Samba] FreeBSD Winbind and Symlinks

I believe their are some files I need to copy and then
symlink to get Winbind working on FreeBSD 5.2 with
nsswitch and LDAP, but am not quite sure which one
because I have seen conflicting results. 

The following files are in my samba-3.01 work
directory but do not appear to get installed when I
build via the ports collection.   Do I need to copy
them manually, if so where do they need to go?  Do
they need to be in /user/local/lib or /usr/lib?

libnss_winbind.so, libnss_wins.so,pam_winbind.so

I have seen a reference to symlinking with regards to
samba bug #797 which has been fixed which says you
need the following symlinks

root# *ln -s /usr/lib/libnss_winbind.so
root# *ln -s /usr/lib/libnss_winbind.so
root# *ln -s /usr/lib/libnss_winbind.so

Do theses symlinks need to be done?

Any help would be appreciated.
