   Would I been correct in thinking that you had it try doing the
configration step?   As noted in the NEWS file, it's experimental and
not enabled by default.  OTOH;  if it is enabled, it's also shouldn't
be coming up with an error.like that.  I'll be taking a look at it
later;  but in the mean time, you might could abort out of that,
attempt the install without enabling that config, then manually
setting the password for the 'ledgersmb' database user as noted in the
README.Debian file.
