[Samba] WINS Problem

This WINS problem is baffling.  I have built Samba from the source and 
the make install did not seem to put the libnss_wins.so.2 anywhere.  
Here is the ./configure command I used.  Perhaps someone can enlighten me

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/samba --with-configdir=/etc/samba 
--with-privatedir=/etc/samba/private --with-piddir=/var/samba 
--with-lockdir=/var/samba/locks --with-logfilebase=/var/samba/logs 

I am running Debian Sarge release and I have the following development 
libraries installed: libpam0g-dev, libldap2-dev, and libnss-dev.  I 
don't need ADS support.  Something is going wrong but no errors are 
being thrown on the screen or in the syslog.  WINS resolution is totally 
broken.  I have the correct settings in nsswitch.conf.  What else could 
I be missing?  What further info do you need from me?
