OK, here goes:
1. Add an "lsb-samba" spec file for RPM (RPM is the only
supported packager format), and we can add an EPM list
file that can generate it, too...
The "lsb-samba" package needs to depend on "lsb".
The "samba" name must be registered with the LANANA
body (link points to a page that says nothing is
up yet, tho)
2. Configure the source with:
./configure --with-fhs --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc \
--sharedstatedir=/var/opt/ --datadir=/usr/share \
(SAMBA is exempt from the FHS /usr/opt, /etc/opt, and /var/opt
