Samba and mountd spin

I recently removed a lot (!!!) of packages from my 6.2-STABLE system  
as I no longer wanted to use it for a desktop, but still wanted it to  
be my home server.  When I rebooted it yesterday for nonrelated  
reasons, it hung on the Samba startup.  Further testing shows that  
whenever I try to run it's rc.d script, smbd and mountd fight for  
100% of the CPU.

Honestly, I don't have any idea where to even start looking for this  
problem.  I'm currently running "portupgrade -Rf samba" just in case  
I inadvertently removed some critical library, but is there anything  
else I might look for?Î
