kerberos 1.2.6 and samba 2.2.7

I've been testing a kerberos & samba combo to get kerberos authentication 
going for our domain but i've run into a little snag.

Kerberos compiles and works perfectly - its only when samba tries to link 
with the kerberos libraries that I have problems. Here's the errors I get:
/usr/local/lib/ undefined reference to 'kdb2_dbopen'
/usr/local/lib/ undefined reference to 'kdb2_bt_rseq'

I read in the docs that the db2 functions were renamed to avoid a conflict 
with the NetBSD libc. Is that where the problem is?

I'd give kerberos 1.2.7 a go but I live in Australia and cant get it. The 
crypro publishing project only has 1.2.6.
