Not really, more a deficiency in portmaster.  The port itself is marked
as conflicting with any other samba port:

CONFLICTS?=             *samba3[2-6]-3.* samba4-4.0.* samba4[1-356]-4.* p5-Parse-Pidl-4.*

E.g., you should normally not be able to build it when samba43 is
installed.  Probably, portmaster is overriding this safety belt somehow.
