Apple OS X SMB issues across VPN

Could I get some pointers from you guys on this?  I have built other  
packages from scratch but in this case I want to do it right.  Given  
that I have Apple's stock samba installed I would like to try to  
minimize the damage to it.


All the stock files seem to be in


Now if I did a standard:

sudo make install

If I am correct everything should be dumped in /usr/local/ so I can  
run a parallel install which is what I would like to do.  All I need  
is samba installed and a simple r/w share enabled for testing.  If I  
rebuild my Xserve's Samba install I am guessing it will be ugly given  
the tie-in with Apple's Open Directory (LDAP) structure to provide  
authentication for SMB users.

Is my build as simple as:

sudo make install
