## Ok as far as I'm aware the following is true, you must use MIT or Heimdal Kerberos with
## Solaris because Solaris Kerberos is not available with header files (Sun have no plans
## to include headers with their bundled distribution). Sun/MIT/Heimdal implementations of
## Kerberos are all gssapi compliant authentication mechanisms. 
## You appear to have installed what looks like a second version of gssapi (I assume also Heimdal)
## which Samba make is not liking. I'm sorry I haven't tried installing Heimdal Kerberos myself,
## can you check whether it is possible to install/compile it without installing a duplicate
## implementation of gssapi? Or maybe someone else on the list can help?
## thanks Andy. 

The problem is with the header files.  It tries to use the ones from
Solaris 9 kerberos implementatoin which are located in /usr/include as
opposed to the ones from heimdal in /opt/local/include).  This happens
using both cc and gcc.
configure works  fine but make fails.

I also changed /var/ld/ld.config, but the problem is not the libraries, is
the include files. This is what crle shows:
oak:/tmp/samba-3.0.2a/source % crle

Configuration file [3]: /var/ld/ld.config
  Default Library Path (ELF):   /opt/local/lib:/usr/lib
  Trusted Directories (ELF):    /usr/lib/secure  (system default)

Command line:
  crle -c /var/ld/ld.config -l /opt/local/lib:/usr/lib

The last few lines of configure are:
checking how to build vfs_cap... shared
Using libraries:
    LIBS = -lsendfile -lsec -lgen -lresolv -lsocket -lnsl  -liconv
    KRB5_LIBS = -lcom_err  -L/opt/local/encap/heimdal-0.6/lib -lgssapi
-lkrb5 -lasn1 -L/opt/local/lib -lcrypto -lroken
    LDAP_LIBS = -lldap -llber

Any ideas?
