This is for Red Hat 3.0:

Firstly, you'd be far better off using the official Samba RH srpm, 
installing the spec file, changing that to suit your needs and 
rpmbuilding -bb from that. That's my experience on RHAS3, anyway - even 
though I've got OL 2.2.4 installed from source, just as you have :)

Secondly, have you added /usr/local/lib to /etc/ld.so.conf and run 
ldconfig? Presumably you have, and /usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.2/lib, etc 
also, otherwise OL 2.2.4 wouldn't work. Otherwise, try try to start the 
smbd daemon by hand from the CLI after doing 'export 
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib' and see what happens. If that works, try 
adding 'LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/lib"' to your Samba configure options. 
Although I have the RH 2.0.27 client libraries on my test and production 
rigs, Samba seems to want the latest libraries of everything I have.
