[Samba] Samba Packages

I am running Solaris 11, which includes samba 4.4.14.    The packaging 
method has changed from Solaris 10, and you need a support contract to 
register the system for the latest version.   I have no idea if Solaris 
10 includes samba 4.x.

I think to configure or rebuild Samba on Solaris 11 as an AD Directory 
Server/Domain controller would be difficult, since Solaris does not 
include the Heimdal version of Kerberos. Solaris 11 also includes its 
own SMB implementation, which I have not tried out yet, but is probably 
simple enough if you are configuring as a client.
