I'm just reporting it because it's annoying to edit example to make them work.

On Debian Perl Group it's a common practice to fix Perl interpreter path on examples.

As example see:

#543671 [libbit-vector-perl] libbit-vector-perl: Examples provides wrong path for interpreter
#601402 [libarchive-zip-perl] libarchive-zip-perl: Examples provides wrong path for interpreter
#601403 [libemail-address-perl] libemail-address-perl: Examples provides wrong path for interpreter

If you consider this is not applicable for 'samba-doc' example, please feel fre to close this bug.

Sorry for the noise.
