This belongs here because the message is a muddled mess. It might belong to
gnome@ because I am only aware that gnome is the remaining ports user of
this port. (I'm quite possibly wrong about this.)

It's telling you (very poorly) that Samba v3.6 is no longer supported by
the samba folks and you should stop using it and that it is scheduled to be
deleted at hte end of June. Unfortunately, the Gnome v2 VFS stuff still
depends on it and a lot of MATE depends on gnome VFS. The Gnome folks are
not likely to do anything to fix a problem with Gnome2 stuff. The version
of gnome-vfs in ports is the current one and I ave no idea if the MATE
people are working on updating it to use something newer.
