I've used:

./configure.developer --prefix=/opt/samba4-3bea5a147b

After re-running make, the provision script ran ok.

I think I would be very useful update the instructions on, maybe add something

If you get an error like this:
 Failed to setup database for BIND, AD based DNS cannot be used
 Exception: Error copying /path/to/install/dir/private/sam.ldb
as a workaround, you need to rerun 'make' and the provision script again.

Thank you very much!
