I was wrapping my own packages.  I have an older FC1 box that I just
can't go an update to the latest crazy release.  Have a workaround
myself; only it isn't very elegant.  I have to go back and check the
versions before committing the final package.  Just not very automatic;
but, it does work.

Thanks again for everyone's great work.

Maybe I can still find a bug or two before the 3.2.2 release.  But, I
doubt it; since, I don't really push samba very hard.
