Hello I found an issue with samba documentation on the website and in

There is not a "-B" option for winbindd... I think it was intended to

[root at server source]# /usr/local/samba/sbin/winbindd -B
Invalid option -B: unknown option
Usage: winbindd [-?] [-?SFDinV] [-?|--help] [--usage] [-S|--stdout]
[-F|--foreground] [--no-process-group] [-D|--daemon] [-i|--interactive]
[-n|--no-caching] [-d|--debuglevel DEBUGLEVEL]
[-s|--configfile CONFIGFILE] [-l|--log-basename LOGFILEBASE]
Alternative: Starting smbd as a Daemon

was much harder to read :) The HOW-TO's and EXAMPLES are especially
