My first question would be, why not use the Solaris Samba? IIRC, on  
S9, it was patched up to 3.something, which could be enough for your

I agree with Marc here: why inetd? It doesn't sound good.

Also, I'm maintaining the OpenCSW Samba package for Solaris  
It's currently 3.6.18 for Solaris 10. I've checked that it still  
builds for Solaris 9 with no trouble.

I've put S9 packages there:

You're welcome to try them and tell me if they work for you. OpenCSW  
is focusing on S10 at the moment, but if there is interest in S9, that  
could be kept running for a while.
