NetBSD 6.1_STABLE NetBSD 6.1_STABLE (MI-Server) #6: Mon Feb 15 13:45:03 CET 2016 amd64
Architecture: x86_64
Machine: amd64
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: )
Install net/samba4 and start /etc/rc.d/samba.
