Thank for your help everyone!  I did get Samba compiled and upgraded and 
running fine on my test machine.  I plan on upgrading production this 
evening (still running the sunfreeware.com package of 3.0.2a) to 3.0.8a 
tonight.  Problem is I have compile errors on one machine.  The other two 
have worked fine.  The one that is having problems is a Solaris 8 machine.

The error when compiling is:

bash-2.03# make
Using FLAGS =  -O -I./popt -Iinclude 
-I/f1/kls/samba/samba-3.0.8/source/smbwrapper  -I. -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE 
-D_REENTRANT -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -I/f1/kls/samba/samba-3.0.8/source
       LIBS = -lsendfile -lsec -lgen -lresolv -lsocket -lnsl -ldl
       LDSHFLAGS = -G  -lthread
       LDFLAGS = -lthread
Compiling dynconfig.c
Compiling smbd/vfs.c
Compiling passdb/pdb_interface.c
Compiling lib/iconv.c
Compiling auth/auth.c
Compiling smbd/build_options.c
Compiling smbd/server.c
Linking bin/smbd
/usr/ccs/bin/ld: illegal option -- E

Probably something simple.  I did the configure with the option of 
--with-included-popt so I would not have to set the LD_Library_Path in the 
startup script.

Please help!
Thanks in advance!
