If that were the case, then why were those ports listed as  
dependencies not actually installed on my system?  I know that a port  
lists the dependencies of all of the ports on which it depends, and  
that is normal.  In this case, there are dependencies that do not  
exist on my system, and never have.  Besides none of the other ports  
on my system list them as dependencies, only samba3 does.
