One would hope that they all take into account the FHS (or FSSTD)
perhaps you could email those which don't. Anyway for Debian he
following URL will give you a list of samba (but not smb) related

the differences between vanilla source and the Debian one.

Here is the relevant portion from the unstable samba-common source
diff, btw the maintainer can be reached on peloy at debian.org:


/var/samba/[lock files]

There are a few other details but probably the best person to ask is
the maintainer.
