Sorry, but my experience was very different from yours. I deleted the
old version of Samba43, deactivated it in rc.conf, rebooted the machine
and installed the new version. I reactivated it in rc.conf and manually
started it. Everything worked fine. Are you absolutely sure you deleted
it? Try "make clean" before rebuilding the port and see if that helps.
