I suspect Rohit used the "rsync" instructions on the Samba4 HOWTO.
When I tried that a few days ago it was broken.  ./ said it
was setting up for waf, but ./configure.developer actually ran the
autoconf version of configure.

I posted about ftp/unpacked/samba_4_0_test/ being broken here:

but I saw no reply from anyone saying it had been fixed.

I'd change the HOWTO if I could, but I gave up trying to get the
wiki-editor to notice my requests for edit access.

Rohit, just use the git instructions or the alpha13 tarball, which is
still quite new.
