John found that under certain error conditions, the samba binaries 
coming from net/samba41
were not properly dumping core.  This made debugging error conditions 
very hard.

If the net/samba41 port is compiled with gcc47, then the smbd and nmbd 
get compiled as executables instead of shared objects, and this problem 
does not happen.
