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

That's what I'm hoping for since I've been unable to compile on Windows 7 x64.  I am getting the same errors as Jeff, just a general compiler summary error with no real indication of what caused the issue.  I may also try compiling the older version using the makefile and patch Ross did at https://smithii.com/samba on XP first to make sure I can at least recreate the wheel and then move up to higher versions from there.  If I can't reproduce something someone already did then there is little chance I can compile a new one anyway and I'll have to look further into either tricking the Pydio software to remotely access a share or writing my own plugin to do it for me, both things I don't know if I'm capable of but I'm willing to try.

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.

As Windows provides binary compatibility you might just be able to get a 32-bit WindowsXP binary to run on the Windows server you're targetting.
