This mostly shows that samba4 from experimental requires several
packages that are not in

*that* is the problem. samba4 packages are linked against libldb0
which is not installable.

I suspect that samba4 uploaded yesterday by Jelmer in experimental
will solve this, but this package introduces new binary packages and
is therefore waiting in the NEW queue, for being processed by Debian
ftpmasters (any source package introducing binaries goes this way).
