and that roll-your-own open source comes with the standard 2-part 
warranty.  you break it, you get to keep both pieces.

if he's working with samba sources and building his own samba, he'd be 
better off discussing this with the samba mailling list than the centos 
mailling list.

the samba distribution from centos comes with the file he's missing.   a 
generic source-built samba likely will require you to write your own 
starting script.
