$ rpm -q samba

The manpage should be removed - in 2.2 pdbedit is only built for passdb backends
other than smbpasswd.  However, in 3.0 pdbedit has been rewriten (in 3.0 it's
actually quite useful) and the manpage applies...

My problem is very similar. Actually I'm working with Redhat9 but the problem
was the same with version 8.0.

I need to regenerate the Samba package in order to add ldapsam support. I pick
the SRPMS package from your oficial FTP, even the updated one. After editing the
SPEC file, I run "$ rpmbuild -bb rpm/SPECS/samba.spec" amd everything works fine
up to the end when I get this error:

Checking for unpackaged file(s): /usr/lib/rpm/check-files /var/tmp/samba-2.2.7a-root
error: Installed (but unpackaged) file(s) found:
RPM build errors:
    Installed (but unpackaged) file(s) found:

Having a look upwards in the RPMs dump I could see the line
extracting debug info from /var/tmp/samba-2.2.7a-root/usr/bin/pdbedit

So the program is generated but not included in the package. Obviouslly the
build is stopped with error.

pdbedit is included in current Samba rpms.
