On Solaris, one uses the crle command to achieve the same result.

Aside from that, I believe that the general practice for packages that 
include their own libraries is to hard-code the libpath into any 
applicable binaries using '-rpath $prefix/lib' in the linking step (or 
'-R $prefix/lib' with Solaris ld).

If you install samba into its own area (say /usr/local/samba) and the 
libraries are installed in a non-system location (perhaps 
/usr/local/samba/lib), messing with the runtime linker config to make 
samba work should NOT be required.
