[Samba] Samba 3.5.6 - configure creates Makefile with errors on Solaris 10

I was able to get 3.4.9 to build on my Solaris 10 boxes - but nothing 
later.  I've been building my own samba from source for far longer than 
I care to admit (because I should know more about samba by now than I 
do.)  I've never had so many problems building the source has I have had 
the past several months.

I am going to look into the points that Gaiseric Vandal has brought up. 
  I am already using Sunfreeware's gcc.

I got past my latest "make" issue by using Sunfreeware's version of Make 
rather then the one found in /usr/ccs/bin (which has never been a 
problem in the past.)

Following a tip I found at 
http://forums.sun.com/thread.jspa?threadID=5445706  I added "-lintl" to 
the LIBS option in the Makefile.  Line 25

That got me as far as linking winbind:
Linking shared library bin/pam_winbind.so
Undefined                       first referenced
  symbol                             in file
libintl_bindtextdomain              ../nsswitch/pam_winbind.o
libintl_dgettext                    ../nsswitch/pam_winbind.o
ld: fatal: Symbol referencing errors. No output written to 
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [bin/pam_winbind.so] Error 1

Which has me now stopped at the same place on both my Solaris 9 and 
Solaris 10 builds.  On Solaris 9 I have not been able to get a FULLY 
working version of Samba with AD support past version 3.2.15.
