Wow, thank you Miguel. By the way, maybe this information can be
useful for the developers.

As the RHEL4's rpmbuild problem I told you before, I changed a line in
pam_winbind.c - in function `_pam_error_code_str';
old line:

new line:

because I saw this in pam_windbind.h


I rpmbuild-ed it again, it flew through the above stage, but again, it
stucked while compiling samba-3.3.01rc/source/client/mount.cifs.c. It
said that
unlock_mtab and lock_mtab is undefined. I tried digging the source
code, I found this

else {
                rc = lock_mtab();

If I play with

extern int lock_mtab(void);
extern void unlock_mtab(void);

in mount.h, like changing int into void or vice versa, the error code
will say that lock_mtab/unlock_mtab is already defined or something
like that.

In samba.org website, there is this in their release notes samba-3.3.0rc1:

    * mount.cifs: use lock/unlock_mtab scheme from util-linux-ng mount prog.

Perhaps it has something to do with that feature since I couldn't find
the same function in samba-3.2.4's mount.cifs.c source code.

Well, I guess that's all for now. I will try srpm from the site Miguel
told me. Thank you for all the help.
