It was https://bugs.debian.org/941654 - someone said it is too much to have
glib dependencies on a headless server. I don't see it is a big issue though.

BTW, it is usr/libexec/samba/rpcd_mdssvc binary which is being linked with
libtracker-sparql, so it isn't an optional plugin.

I removed the Build-Conflicts from the debian package now (there's no point
in keeping it there), but haven't enabled it in build-depends.
