actual error was as follows in the log.samba

/usr/local/samba/sbin/samba: relocation error:
/usr/local/samba/sbin/samba: symbol load_samba_modules, version
SAMBA_HOSTCONFIG_0.0.1 not defined in file
with link time reference

so I thought the fastest way to fix that was to rebuild after a make
clean am I wrong?
