Hi Bill,

Prior to the recent upgrade to 3.4.5 we had been using an "old" 3.0 version (3.0.28) from your pware project.  At that level of Samba at least the directory structure was "/opt/pware/samba/<version>".  I did the upgrade a few months ago, so I'm trying to recall from memory the exact issue, but I believe after upgrading the WINBIND symbolic link was still pointing to the 3.0.28 binary.  Not sure if the upgrade should have fixed this automatically or not.  Really a minor thing, but something I overlooked initially.

Your project is awesome... Keep up the good work!
