[Samba] Compile Samba for Windows Use - SMBClient.exe mainly

The couple people that did successfully compile it it seems were on Windows XP. I'm going to start up a 32-bit XP machine virtual machine and install only cygwin and what I believe are the dependencies and see how far I can get.   I'm currently out of town so I'll try it either later in the week or next week.

I have most of that installed accept the obvious
Can't install acl, xattr, pam, cups

blkid: I have libblkid1 and libblkid-devel installed
I could not find bsd or setproctitle

I tryed configure as follows
./configure --without-ad-dc --without-pam > configure-2016-05-16.log 2>&1

and attached the configure-2016-05-16.log file nothing really jumps out at me why it is failing.

configure summary failed

Or is that how it is suppose to end?
