I have an ebuild I've been using. I've been building it just fine but I
hadn't posted the ebuild back to github yet. I've had some trouble getting
samba 3.5 DNS so I'd held of publishing it in case there was a problem.
Looks liek that might be something else though so if people are interested
in an ebuild I'll post it so we can collaborate.
