In regards to RPM packages, what is the difference in the prebuilt ones for
example the FC5 RPM's directly from samba.org or obtaining the latest
.tar.gz and running ./makerpms.sh for the desired distribution.
Does this way optimize for example - x86-64 or SMP ?

If you need support for the SerNet packages, you will have to contact

The Fedora specfile provided with Samba is compatible with RHEL4. I don't
build RHEL4 packages only because IMO if you pay for support for RedHat,
installing non-vendor supplied packages would void your support agreement.
Althought I could provide RPMS for the lates version of CentOS which should
be binary comatible with RHEL4 systems.
While I'm at it, is there any pressing need for 64-bit rpms as well?
