Tom sent me a patch (that does some other things too) offlist.  It is
not about making it work.  It is just about not building the DC stuff,
which I think might also avoid some dependencies.

So yes, it's space, build time, etc.

In an ideal world, there'd be a split package for the controlller, as
the vast majority of pkgsrc samba users don't run a DC.  (Well, in an
ideal world, nobody would need samba at all!)
