Hm, maybe I do not understand the sentence correctly. Do you mean, that when 
some gplv2 software is built using parts of gplv2 samba and the result is in 
package foo.rpm and one distributes this with a gplv3 samba, which is in a 
package samba.rpm, then this a gplv2 license violation of the gplv2 samba 
used to compile foo.rpm?
