Firstly, considering the size of these patches (small), getting them
inline would have made it easier to comment on them.  Anyway:

Not sure on this one.  Firstly, you shouldn't compile samba --with-ssl
in any case, there is *no* point (no windows client will connect with
ssl).  As to changing the crypto libs, I'm not sure what is being

I assume you don't have nawk on your system.  Hmm, neither do I...  I
might fix this one.  (I don't think that script has had much 'care and
feeding' since its introduction in Samba 2.0...)

This is exactly the kind of patch that we hoped FreeBSD and the like
would make.  local.h was created for this kind of local change.
(Assuming it works :-).  

Finally, you are missing one patch however:  You need to change the
version number to add some FreeBSD identifier.  We had a nasty thing
where the debian people 'fixed' a bug, and we didn't notice till our
users complained that the fix was rather broken.  The user's didn't even
know they were running a modified package.
