Works, so that's how I've been doing my configures)
Configure script had to be run a couple of times as it did correctly catch some
missing deps. Eventually, script ran, samba was compiled, life appeared good.
But winbind wasn't working right - it'd start but wbinfo -u or -g threw a

Forgot to mention - I'm using the MIT Kerberos (1.3.3) from their binary

This is a pam_krb5 issue and has nothing to do with
Samba or winbindd. Sorry.
