No, I don't think it is, if I try to provision 4.6.5 on Freebsd, I get
the reported error message, but if I use 'domain.py' from 4.5.12, it
seems to provision, but if I look at the provision output, I find this:

Setting up sam.ldb users and groups
Setting up self join
xattr_tdb_removexattr() failed to get vfs_handle->data!
Adding DNS accounts

From this, and what I found earlier, I am now convinced it is an extend
attrs problem and as it works on Linux, it is a Freebsd extended attrs
