I'd argue the opposite. kde4-runtime is a "base" package, providing functionality used by other KDE4 apps. "notmuch" on the other hand provides a very specific and IMVHO rather obscure functionality. I think that someone who really wants to have both ports installed can decide for him/herself if it's worth building kde4-runtime from source with -nosamba (or -samba with +samba being a default variant) and suffering the potential loss of functionality in certain KDE4 apps.
