Hi Stefan, Bill, 
How do we participate in this? Can I have a user access to login to your
farm and help you test SAMBA on AIX. Possible and in the future for AIX

That's fine!

see http://build.samba.org/instructions.html for what we need.

having ssh access as user build would also be cool to track down
specific bugs, but it's not strictly needed.

no a pidl option. see the generated code in librpc/gen_ndr/

in samba3 it gets commited to svn as samba3 should not depend on pidl.

in samba4 we recreate this files with each build, because samba4 replies
on working perl and includes pidl.

So we know how a fix for samba3 could look like, just pass --uint-enums
to pidl when generating the files. But we need a bit of discussion about
this. But it will be fixed for the next official release!
