Description Dominik Mierzejewski 2013-12-31 23:59:39 UTC
Samba's libpdb name clashes with the original Brookhaven Protein DataBank libpdb.

FWIW, I e-mailed Andrew Bartlett and Alexander Bokovoy about this back in September and they were receptive to the idea of renaming samba's libpdb, but we never got far, so I'm filing this bug so as not to lose track of the issue.
