SuSE does this as well. It was partly my decision. For a standard
installation I did not want to clobber the directories. I really do
not see any further security benefit if smbpasswd is put somewhere
else. People who play with permissions in /etc/ have to know what they
do. The standard installation does it just fine, and if you chmod
anything there, you are on your own.
