Compiling samba from source in AIX 5.3

Hello all. I have never had any issues like this when compiling applications from source. When I try to compile samba-3.5.0pre2, configure runs with no issues, but when the time comes to make, this happens:

Code:
make: make 1254-025 There must be an existing description file or specify a target.

it's as if configure never did its job??

I know this must be a very easy fix... any help would be very much appreciated! Thanks!

When you entered the make command did you try:

Code:
make all

Thanks for the reply.
I did try make all. It does the same thing. I need to compile from source because I have installed kerberos and openldap and am wanting to authenticate to AIX from Windows AD. I do not believe the binaries were built to include that functionality?

Hmmm, nobody has any idea? Maybe I should have asked in another section, looks like the AIX section is pretty unvisited..

Running Samba for AIX 5.3

I am running Samba on several AIX 5.3 hosts tied to Active Directory.
The site that I found the most useful, outside of samba.org, is http://pware.hvcc.edu
Hopefully this helps you. I know it helped me a lot.
