I didn't get any further with my 'complete' debian package, and nobody
has taken it on yet, as far as I know.  The ubuntu package isn't the
same as what we provide in the tarball - it does not provide 'smbd' for
example, and I'm not supprised by the other challenges.  

This happens because (quite reasonably) the package does not
provide/replace parts that would overlap Samba 3.6 that exists in the
main distribution.  Sadly that means it isn't a complete package.
