because the exe get bigger and bigger, it could make sense to see if we could build samba with dll (shared)

Nice idea.

While I don't see a problem for the server code to build sambaclientlib as dll (and the other one too), it will be an issue for the netdrive plugin (other dlls must be installed into ndfs3 directory, not to ndplugs subdir); since plugin is already small, I suggest to use DLL only for server code.

yes server only. with the client it doesn't make sense, as we have one dll there only. on the server side i guess it's good, as most exe uses the same codepath.

  • Type changed from defect to enhancem.

it looks like only the plugins are built as shared right now. and libsmbclient is done static. at least this is how i interpret configure. the second problem is that they build the dll in non 8.3 manner and add a suffix to the dll. to get it working it would need changes in also.
