Thanks for the replies.
I got this resolved.
    It was case of my eyes not seeing what was in front of my face.  The 
solaris upgrade DID replaced my /usr/lib/nss_winbind.so.1 link with 
Solaris's on library of same name.  So I just had to rename that and 
recreate my link to the samba compiled libnss_winbind.so file.  This is 
how I have the links done in /usr/lib

-r-xr-xr-x   1 root     root       50880 Dec 27 13:14 libnss_winbind.so
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          17 Dec 17 15:29 
libnss_winbind.so.1 -> libnss_winbind.so
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          17 Jan 12 13:58 nss_winbind.so.1 
-> libnss_winbind.so
