[Samba] Compiling Samba with FAM support on Irix

Some weeks ago I asked for help because I got "relocation truncated to 
fit: R_MIPS_GPREL16 against `.srdata'" error messages when trying to 
compile Samba 3.5.8 including FAM support on SGI Irix 6.5.28 using gcc 
3.4.6 .

A hint was found on this page: 
<http://sourceware.org/ml/ecos-discuss/2000-04/msg00214.html>, which 
explains the cause of the message and suggests to try the flag -Gn .

Well, I did. I tried all values from 0 to 9 for -G (setenv LDFLAGS 
"-lfam -Gn"). It didn't change anything.

But since this all is about optimization, I tried to tackle it with the 
compiler optimization flags directly.
And in fact, with the values 3 and 2 for optimization (setenv CFLAGS 
-On) the build was successful!!!

Further note, concerning the next problem on Irix:
Later, during installation, lots of "msgfmt: not found" messages from 
the script installmo.sh appear. As I have learned in IRC, the missing 
msgfmt program belongs to the Gettext runtime and is part of the GNU 
Translation Project. It is for translating the error messages from 
English into other languages. If one is happy with English message 
texts, one can simply ignore those messages during installation...

Hope this helps someone (and that I'm not the only remaining Irix user...),
