[Pkg-samba-maint] Merging some Ubuntu changes...ask the samba-common/dhcp at which priority ?

One of the Ubuntu patches:

--- 3.0.25-1/debian/samba-common.config	2007-05-21 12:15:48.000000000 +0100
+++ 3.0.25-1ubuntu1/debian/samba-common.config	2007-05-21 12:14:55.000000000 +0100

 # even if it isn't yet.
 #elif dpkg-query -W --showformat='${Status}\n' dhcp3-client | grep ???
 # unknown ok not-installed ? 

In short, the Debian packages raises the priority of the
samba-common/dhcp to *high* when the machine has the dhcp3-client

This nearly enfrces the question on all suers as "high" priority
questions are shown on default installs.

IMHO, this question is no *that* important and it hasa sane
default. So I don't really see a reason to make it pop up to every

Moreover, as written in samba-common.config, the way to detect that a
DHCP client is installed is rather clumsy and even does not guarantee
that the machine really uses DHCP. As a consequence, the question may
seem really weird to some users.

I personnally vite to drop that part of code and leave the question at
priority medium.
