The VFS modules are installed on my system, and when i grepped the
+CONTENTS file for, it was listed in the package.

There is no need to add 'lib/samba/vfs/' to the
samba3/pkg-plist, as the samba3/Makefile has automatic pkg-plist
generation to  detect the files in PREFIX/lib/samba.  They get added
to the ${TMPPLIST} file, which is used to create the package.
