[Pkg-samba-maint] Bug#831770: smbclient needs /run/samba tmpfiles dir under systemd

Package: smbclient
Version: 2:4.2.10+dfsg-0+deb8u3
Severity: normal


here smbclient dies with a segfault, if /var/run/samba aka /run/samba is
not present:

  Unable to create directory /var/run/samba for file gencache_notrans.tdb.
  Error was Permission denied

In the source package the systemd tmpfiles definition is already
created in the rules file:

  echo "d /run/samba 0755 root root -" >

But it's not installed for the smbclient package, but only for
samba-common-bin, which is no dependency for smbclient.
