Yes, I know. But I thought that since it will be (most probaly) me that makes the
next binary package for KDE-Base I thought it wouldn't be that bad. That and
that I don't want to add Samba as a "real" dependency. If it's there, it's there
otherwice it isn't really needed.

Ok, I'll commit a new recipe and package then.
