[Samba] Compile Samba Source Binaries

This is my first post to this forum, as well as being an Open Source newbie.
I currently have a FreeBSD 5.4 (stable) system with Samba 3.0.14a installed.
I am unable to achieve the build for the user and gid maps through winbind.
I have attempted this with RedHat 8.0, Fedora Core 2, as well as the
FreeBSD. My Samba server authenticates against the Active Directory (AD) and
joins the Domain with no complaints, but lacks the UID and GID databases
built from AD.
Looking through the tree, I am missing "libnss_winbind.so" and
"pam_winbind.so". These components seem to be missing with builds in any of
the systems above, which leads me to believe that I am missing something
fundamental when compiling from source binaries.
My configure includes:
I even found in the archives, and tried, the suggestion to "make && make
"WITH_WINBIND_NSS" install && make clean".
My Samba authenticates and joins the AD if I build the User and Group files
on the local machine, giving full access to the Domain Users.
Please advise on how to properly configure Samba builds that "automagically"
define the UID and GID databases.
Thank You,
