   I emailed Steve Christensen about this while he was at Linux World

on other packages, it rapidly spirals into a dependency hell situation:

   If poeple ask him politely to compile a Samba with ADS support he
might do it, but for now I don't think he had plans to do so. (I would
love to be wrong!)
