    scripting: No longer install samba_upgradeprovision
    This tool is an important part of the toolkit a Samba Team member can
    use to assist a user with the upgrade of a very old Samba 4.0 AD DC
    However, like all powerful tools, it has sharp edges, and these need
    to have more protection added before we recommend the tool be used.
    The WHATSNEW already indicated that this tool should not be used but a
    large number of users have run it, and due to lack of testing in the
    past, some have run into bugs.
    While this tool can be run in debug modes, by default it simply fixes
    the database following a series of internal rule.  This does a good
    job much of the time, but does not request permission in the way that
    dbcheck does, and will create extra objects for things like the DNS
    By removing this from the installed binaries, we provide another
    signal that it should not be used right now, until these matters are
    fixed and some clear documentation on how to safely use the tool can
    be written.
