I had considered trying to compile Samba for PASE but
have no idea what version of AIX is on the system for
V6R1. Found this link that:
Maybe it matches "AIX V6.1" but there doesn't seem
to be any indication that this is the same as the
"IBM i" at V6R1...
I had a heckuva time installing the 2.2.8 Samba client
because, at the time, there were missing "packages".
If your not a "C" guru...its difficult to understand
the maze of messages that occurs during compilation
when you don't have all of the libraries/packages in
place. Its no where near as easy as compiling business
languages like RPG and Cobol :)

I have no idea, but good luck.
Based on a little research, it appears that only Samba versions later
3.6 will work with MS Server 2012. Since I am *not* a C-programmer . . .
Is the plan to compile Samba in PASE? You don't have to be a C programmer to try that, and report any errors you get to the Samba list, and whoever ported Samba to the IBM i. Plenty of unix admins don't know C, but they compile C code all the time. Don't give up on this avenue yet.
If you weren't moving off the IBMi I'd suggest looking long term at sftp because Microsoft is integrating openssh into windows for PowerShell. I'd expect sftp to come with that.
