I recompiled and it now appears to be working. The things that were
different in the compile were:

The previous compile was done with ADS, Kerberos and LDAP whereas I
didn't add any switches this time (not using ADS security).
The person who compiled it last time did so as root. I'm not clear that
this would make a difference but then I'm a complete novice when it
comes to compiling software. I've previously just installed packages
from the SunFreeWare site.

Any thoughts?
