Thanks for the reply.  Running your command:

	2016-06-09 11:21:05 toor at p42800e ~
	# pkg info -l samba44|grep samba-tool
	pkg: No package(s) matching samba44

Checking if Samba is installed:

	2016-06-09 11:21:13 toor at p42800e ~
	# pkg info | grep samba

I thought I installed samba44 yesterday:

	2016-06-08 16:36:43 toor at p42800e ~
	# pkg install samba44

Perhaps there was an error between the keyboard and the seat.  Try again:

That looks more like it.  Now I have samba-tool:

Thanks for the help. :-)
