This appears to be an incompatibility between samba 3.0.22 on FC5 and 
samba 3.0.14 on the server. I was able to compile and run smbpasswd 
version 3.0.14 successfully on FC5. (although it should be noted the 
global "make" bombs out early on, and smbpasswd can be compiled only by 
following the global make with "make /bin/smbpasswd").
