Hy Volker,

thanks for your feedback.
Yes sure we have a C/C++ compiler which also supports some posix 

I'm just not a c programmer if there would be any need for correcting the 
source code?!?
but for the "build" process on the mainframe, this would be no problem, as 
lond it is
I am in contact with samba.org to get technical assistance there also,
I let you know, what I will get...

There used to be somthing that claimed to run on MVS ages
(and I mean AGES, my rough guess would be 10 years) ago.

Sure, if you have something vaguely looking like Posix with
a C compiler, then the chances are not too bad.

I'd love to see Samba running on z/OS, but I fear that
without access to such a box by someone knowledgeable with
the Samba build process you will not get very far. I would
be happy to assist you to get it up and running there.
