>Description:
The net/samba4 rc-script "samba" is useless right now, because it tries to start a non-existent sbin/samba executable.
Instead, it would be more helpful, if this script could be a wrapper for handling smbd, nmbd and winbind -- at least this is what the rc-script in net/samba does.

(It was suggested, that I should file a pr here: https://mail-index.netbsd.org/pkgsrc-users/2016/12/01/msg024041.html )
>How-To-Repeat:
Install net/samba4 and start /etc/rc.d/samba.

 Not only is the useless rc.d/samba installed (in examples/rc.d - along
 with a MESSAGE indicating it can be started once installed) the
 files/winbindd.sh rc.d script for winbindd is not installed (and
 again, the MESSAGE indicates that starting smbd nmbd (which have
 working rc.d scripts) and winbindd gives a different service
 (alternative to using the nom functional rc.d/samba)

 Also, according to its web page, samba4 is at vers 4.6.2
 the pkgsrc version is 4.3.9 ...

 Ignore this, I hadn't noticed that the pkg had (fairly) recently been
 updated ...   I'll update and try again.
