security = domain (latest source - http://samba.anu.edu.au/cvs.html) or
security = server (latest source or latest main release -

these questions are best asked on samba-ntdom@samba.anu.edu.au but first
check http://samba.anu.edu.au/listproc/samba-ntdom

obtain http://www.cb1.com/~lkcl/arcfour.c; add -DUSE_ARCFOUR to the
Makefile; go from there.
