What's "attr-2.4.19"? What's "acl-2.2.27-1"? Would they by any chance be
rpm library versions?  What's the OS and distro? Looks as if it might be
late Red Hat. Then again, it might not.

Possibly because Samba doesn't have ACL support compiled in? Where did
your Samba package(s) come from? Were they srpms? How did you install?

This doesn't look like ACL stuff to me.
