Thanks, I know, but that's not the problem.

pamsmbd doesn't read the password file directly; instead it asks smbd.
I discovered it uses LanMan passwords, which are now disabled by 
default, so I added "lanman auth=yes" to smb.conf: this was some step 
ahead, but still not enough.

I also tried, which comes with Samba and reads the 
smbpasswd file directly: I expect it would know where it is, since it 
comes from the same port. No success here either.

This worries me a lot, since the working samba version was removed from 
the port tree...

  bye & Thanks
