I have tried to compile smbwrapper on my Slackware 7.0, but like
other Linux-distros, there seem to be a problem with stat64 structs.

If anyone have a solution on have to compile smbwrapper on linux 2.x I
would be very pleased.

On the other hand, if enough peole requests a SambaPython-lib I might
feel motivated to develop a wrapper thing ;-)
