Of course, the Samba3 Debian packaging is already quite different from
what currently sits in CVS; so it does not make a good basis for further
patches to CVS, unless someone has already agreed to accept our FHS
The real problem, btw, is not that config files and libraries are
installed to the same directory; it is that the current Makefile gives
the site admin no way to make them NOT install to the same directory
(without hacking the Makefile). So distinguishing between LIBDIR and
CONFDIR (even if they point to the same place by default!) is a good
