Samba not starting isn't necessarily related to the way you're
incrementally updating. Does it work fine in a clean git clone ?
"make clean" should remove all artefacts created by the build system. If
that doesn't remove all files, you can always run "git clean -f -x -d",
which will remove *all* files in the tree that aren't versioned.
