Caution: This advice is WRONG.  If you have a RUNNING Samba 4.3 do NOT
deinstall it before attempting to build the CVE-patched version.

I followed the above advice on failure to build the latest Samba 4.3 and
now have NO samba server software on the machine; I get to recover from
last snapshot now (or attempt to load it via pkg), as the build STILL
fails in the same place following deinstall with errors in undefined
references to BIO_ calls.

Since Samba is a *very* widely used piece of software *and* the upgrade
is broken the maintainer either needs to get this fixed pronto or the
port needs to be marked broken so that people don't get hosed in this
fashion on 11-BETA{1|2}.

Good thing it's the weekend and I can afford the lack of SMB server on
this network at the present time without being lynched.
