They differ:

What would be the best way to fix this? Can I remove the content of one of the 
directories and place new hard links in it?

Are there any other files that should be hard links below /usr/local/samba? 
Maybe other hardlinks got lost too in the past (maybe by copying to a 
different partition or something).
