[Samba] AIX 5.3 Samba member server to an NT domain

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I'm trying to get AIX to authenticate users off another Samba server (with
an eye to doing the same off a Windows server at some point, just to be
flexible). I have been using the binary distribution of Samba 3.0.22 to do
this. While I have been able to get users to log in by using the WINBIND
authentication method, they still cannot change their password or use FTP. I
haven't been able to find the PAM module in the binary distribution.

So now I'm trying to compile Samba from source using the GCC 3.3.2-5
compiler from the Linux Toolbox CD. This is not going very well. The
configure script warns that aio.h, tcp.h and ldap.h cannot be compiled,
don't exist or both. These files do exist, though they may not be where
Configure expects them. So far, despite much trying, I've not been able to 

So what do I have to do to make Samba's ./configure happy on a
freshly-installed AIX 5.3 system?

Kind regards,
  Menno Willemse
