[Samba] Problems building Samba 4.x on Solaris 9 and 10 - libintl (again)

Trying to get current, but having problems building samba 4.x on Solaris 

I've Been trying to build either samba 4.0.19 or 4.1.9 on Sparc boxes 
running both Solaris 9 and Solaris 10.  I am using gcc 3.4.6 from the 
old www.sunfreeware.com site.  I also have libintl 3.4.0 from them as well.

My machines are domain member servers in an Active Directory environment 
run by folks that are not keen on Samba - yay for me.  Currently running 
Samba 3.6.24 and one box still on 3.5.8.

I have had issues in the past with Samba 3.5 and 3.6 building and have 
had to add "-lintl" to the Makefile by hand in several locations in 
order to get Samba to build.  With samba 4's new build system my old 
tricks no longer work.

With 4.x I am again seeing problems centered on libintl.  I see either 
of the following errors upon running make:

[3326/3808] Linking default/source4/heimdal_build/samba4kinit
Undefined			first referenced
  symbol  			    in file
ld: fatal: Symbol referencing errors. No output written to 
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
Waf: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/samba-4.1.9/bin'
Build failed:  -> task failed (err #1):
	{task: cc_link print_version_133.o,version_133.o,kinit_138.o -> 
make: *** [all] Error 1

If I re-run configure adding "--without-ad-dc --without-gettext" I see 
the following:

[1698/3357] Compiling source4/heimdal/lib/krb5/log.c
In file included from /usr/include/locale.h:50,
                  from ../lib/replace/system/locale.h:35,
                  from ../source4/heimdal_build/vis.h:4,
                  from ../source4/heimdal/lib/krb5/log.c:37:

Build failed:  -> task failed (err #1):
	{task: cc log.c -> log_57.o}

Would anyone that has built current versions of Samba on Solaris/Sparc 
have any guidance to offer?
