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

this is probably an error that comes into play by some additional sunfreeware
packages that you installed. We have a Solaris 10 machine in the build farm
which compiles fine with gcc and with the studio compiler:


You may compare the differences between that build and yours, especially the
configure output. From the error you post I guess you have some gettext related
stuff which requires some extra linker flags. Can you tell which package
provides libintl on your box. If a simple installation of that package on our
build box triggers the same problem here it's easier for us to fix.
