It loks as if the package was made as a non-root
user, kalele, in group fcf. Pkgadd is having
problems overwriting the previous version.

I'd remove the initial version using pkgrm
and try again: if that doesn't work (and it may not)
do a chown -fR root /usr/local/samba and a
chgrp -fR other /usr/local/samba and try again.
I use SPARC so the x86... HEY!
That was a sparc version according to pkgadd...
check the binaries which did install and see if they
are even for an x86.
Would the packaging folks please check, too: the
ownership should be root, other, too.
