(unless you've added that yourself). So there's little reason to install
cifs.upcall there.

So is the samba.spec file designed for RHEL 5+ then? I'm trying to
simplify things by using the included scripts and files and not rolling my
own. If 'configure' does not find the proper headers (or libraries),
there's no sense having the .spec file look for the binaries if they're
not going to be generated. Not sure if there's a way to automated that.

Turns out that Samba is looking for "keyutils.h", while RHEL4 has
"keyutil.h" (no 's'). Ditto for "libkeyutil[s].so". Create a soft link
fixed the 'configure' and linking errors, and allowed the RPMs to be

Next step will be to check if the resulting binaries actually work.
