Compiling the latest samba was indeed the way to go. I'd made an error
editing /etc/nsswitch.conf
which I didn't catch before.

I do have a question though...

Which files from:


need to end up in /lib ?

And which need symlinks?

I just ended up copying /nsswitch/lib* across and then doing

 ln -s libnss_winbind.so libnss_winbind.so.2
 ln -s libnss_wins.so libnss_wins.so.2

Thanks for your advice!
