There are still a few issues that are|were hitting these backproted

- up to yesterday, the size of the arch:all packages (samba-common,
samba-doc, samba-doc-pdf) was not fittingn the size mentioned in the
Packages file, leading to an APT warning.
  This was indirectly caused by the manual upload of binary packages
  for the amd64 platform and has been fixed

- the winbind package fails to install properly because of the
  use of an unknown command in its postinst script.
  This can be fixed with the following hack (as root):
  ln -s /bin/true /usr/local/bin/pam-auth-update
  (please remember removing that link once that packages are
  An alternate way to avoid this is by remmoving the lines calling
  pam-auth-update in /var/lib/dpkg/info/winbind.{postrm,postinst}

I'm preparing updated packages to fix this.
