I am re-installing (or installing for the first time since it is a new computer) Gentoo and I am experiencing a problem with Samba that I haven't experienced in the past.

When I start Samba, it stucks in starting without finishing:
# /etc/init.d/samba start
 * samba -> start: smbd ...

If I check the status from another terminal:
# /etc/init.d/samba status
 * status: starting

The log doesn't report any particular error (I trimmed the log to the last entry because the previous are the same from previous attempts):
cat /var/log/samba/log.smbd
[2014/09/06 11:56:59,  0] smbd/server.c:1072(main)
  smbd version 3.6.23 started.

The following is the smb.conf that I am using (I carried over from the previous installation and it worked there):
workgroup = RETTORGOLE
netbios name = PC-MARCO
# Of course this has no REAL purpose other than letting
# everyone knows it's not Windows!
# %v prints the version of Samba we are using.
#server string = Samba Server %v

# We are going to use cups, so we are going to put it in here ;-)
printcap name = cups
printing = cups
load printers = yes

# We want a log file and we do not want it to get bigger than 50kb.
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
max log size = 50

# We are going to set some options for our interfaces...
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
# This is a good idea, what we are doing is binding the
# samba server to our local network.
# For example, if eth0 is our local network device
interfaces = lo enp5s0
bind interfaces only = yes
# Now we are going to specify who we allow, we are afterall
# very security conscience, since this configuration does
# not use passwords!
hosts allow =
hosts deny =

# Other options for this are USER, DOMAIN, ADS, and SERVER
# The default is user
security = user
client lanman auth = yes
client ntlmv2 auth = no

# No passwords, so we're going to use a guest account!
guest ok = yes

# Now we setup our print drivers information!
comment = Printer Drivers
path = /etc/samba/printer # this path holds the driver structure
guest ok = yes
browseable = yes
read only = yes
# Modify this to "username,root" if you don't want root to
# be the only printer admin)
write list = marco,root

# Now we'll setup a printer to share, while the name is arbitrary
# it should be consistent throughout Samba and CUPS!
#comment = HP DeskJet 930C Network Printer
#printable = yes
#path = /var/spool/samba
#public = yes
#guest ok = yes
# Modify this to "username,root" if you don't want root to
# be the only printer admin)
#printer admin = marco,root

# Now we setup our printers share. This should be
# browseable, printable, public.
comment = All Printers
browseable = no
printable = yes
writable = no
public = yes
guest ok = yes
path = /var/spool/samba
# Modify this to "username,root" if you don't want root to
# be the only printer admin)
printer admin = marco,root

# We create a new share that we can read/write to from anywhere
# This is kind of like a public temp share, anyone can do what
# they want here.
[Cartella condivisa]
#comment = Public Files
browseable = yes
public = yes
create mode = 0766
guest ok = yes
path = /archive/shared

net-fs/samba-3.6.23-r1 was built with the following:
USE="acl aio client cups fam ldap netapi pam readline server smbclient winbind -addns -ads -avahi -caps -cluster -debug -dmapi -doc -examples -ldb -quota (-selinux) -smbsharemodes -swat -syslog" ABI_X86="64 -32 -x32"

Any idea on what is causing the issue?

Thanks in advance.

Ok, I solved the problem, but in a strange way: I simply had to recompile it with a mere "emerge --ask net-fs/samba". I have no idea why. 8O

Maybe it was due to some library conflict not caught by "emerge @preserved-rebuild", but it is a wild guess.
