FreeBSD Port: samba*

I see. I ran the 3.0.x branch and I've found it to be stable for the most
part, however character conversion (needed to setup file sharing for Macs)
did not work, and neither did the vfs modules I needed. Hope the issues get
resolved soon.

Well, 3.0 branch isn't yet 'stable' in the FreeBSD sence, at least. If you
take a look on a samba roadmap, they expect stability only in the 3.x series
of samba. Samba 3 is still for brave ones or for those who need new features
badly :)
