Have you been able to run Samba newer than 3.2.15 in Lion?

Hi, All.

I have made a tool (called SMBUp) that is supposed to be a front-end for Samba for Lion. I made it mainly because a bunch of friends of mine have mediacenters or old devices that can only communicate through SMB1 and Lion's SMB implementation doesn't work for them.

For this I have made an installer for Samba and its dependencies (my program allows the user to download and install it) but it's from the latest version supported by MacPorts (which is 3.2.15), a somewhat old one.

This version has some issues with user group resolution so I've been trying to get a newer version to work, but I haven't had any luck. Newer versions either don't compile or crash on startup.

So, my question is twofold. Either/or:

1.-Have you been able to run MacPorts Samba version (3.2.15) in authentication mode? (guest mode works OK) If so, how did you manage to do so?

2.-Have you been able to compile/run a newer version of Samba in Lion where authentication (not only guest access) works? If so, how did you do it, did you modify MacPorts or Homebrew for it?
