[Pkg-samba-maint] Bug#534772: smbstatus.1.gz (or smbstatus.samba3.1.gz) is missing but listed in md5sums

Package: samba
Version: 2:3.3.5-1
Severity: normal

The debsums report shows that /usr/share/man/man1/smbstatus.1.gz is
missing, although it is mentioned in samba.md5sums. During the
installation update-alternatives should create it, but fails because the
source /usr/share/man/man1/smbstatus.samba3.1.gz is missing. See below:

Setting up samba (2:3.3.5-1) ...
update-alternatives: using /usr/bin/smbstatus.samba3 to provide /usr/bin/smbstatus (smbstatus) in auto mode.
update-alternatives: warning: skip creation of /usr/share/man/man1/smbstatus.1.gz because associated file /usr/share/man/man1/smbstatus.samba3.1.gz (of link group smbstatus) doesn't exist.

This also happens on reinstalling the package. So there currently is no
manpage for smbstatus.
