[Samba] samba and ads authentication

When running configure command should I be setting CFLAGS and if so which should I be using?   Could this be the cause of the error when I am compiling?

Solaris 9, samba 3.0.23c, openLDAP 2.3

I managed to run the configure script for samba successfully using the following parameters :-

./configure --with-ldap --with-ads --with-pam --with-winbind --with-krb5=/usr/local/lib

Now when I am running "make" I am getting the following error... (any ideas)

You probably do not have the Kerberos development package installed.
This would include the krb5.h file amongst other things.  I did not
see any mention of what operating system you're running, but e.g.
Debian and Ubuntu have a package called libkrb5-dev.  On an RPM-based
distribution it is probably something like krb5-devel.
