Yeah, exactly.

It's more that someone has helpfully added Samba as a requirement so
that direct winbind auth works, and then someone else is complaining
that they don't want Samba on their system.

Honestly, life's too short. Install the Samba libraries, move on. Or if
they really care that much they could stop complaining and just take
the dependency out manually themselves before rebuilding.
