1. Are you going to I18N patch to net/samba package or newly named
   package?  As past Japanese version of Samba, I18n patch might not
   be catched up with official Samba's release.

2. On NetBSD current, it isn't verified that it runs fine with base
   system's iconv support or not.  Once I've tried to test with "build
   farm" (by Samba I18N project), but I didn't complete it.  :-(

   Do you plan to test on NetBSD current?

3. For a Japanese processing point of view, you need to add patch to

   This patch is against libiconv 1.8, (I don't check libiconv 1.9.1
   on pkgsrc.)

Lastly, I don't think you will override ja-samba package, please keep
ja-samba as now.

Best regards.
