I'm surprised nobody has noticed this before, except perhaps
if this is a SPARC-specific issue.  I'm running -current,
and trying to run the pkgsrc Samba to do domain logins.
I get the following error in log.smb and smbd fails to even start:

[1999/12/10 05:09:21, 1] smbd/server.c:main(643)
  smbd version 2.0.6 started.

I see an ipc created, owned by root, group wheel(0).
It looks like Samba is confused by NetBSD's SysV SHM?

My smb.conf follows:

        workgroup = LLMDSB
        server string = NetBSD - Samba %v
        security = DOMAIN
        log file = /var/log/log.%m
        max log size = 50
        domain logons = Yes
        domain master = Yes
        wins support = Yes

        comment = Home Directories
        read only = No

        comment = Network Logon Service
        path = /usr/pkg/lib/netlogon
        guest ok = Yes
        share modes = No

        comment = All Printers
        path = /var/tmp
        print ok = Yes
