it's just a temporary workaround.  and i don't think there is anything
holding the package back from supporting pkgviews.

well, the issue seems to be even more complicated, since qemu doesn't
depend on samba in any way, so there might be no samba package to
evaluate against.

qemu is just wrong about this and should stop trying to be smart and use
some more flexible way to point to smbd.. :/

as a more correct solution, what about adding a "samba" option for the
package and add dependency on samba while pointing to the real location
of smbd?
