That's due use of more recent versions of gcc, which have a bad reaction
(as regards file size at least) to the way samba is compiled when using
debug symbols.

Other than eating your hard disk, it should have no other impact on the
running of your system.

The 3.0.0 release was shipped with -g enabled by accident, this has been
corrected in 3.0.1pre1.
