The latest versions of Samba do not compile well with older versoins
of gnutls I've tried to create CentOS compatible RPM's for leading
edge Samba releases, and had to throw in the towel some time ago. If
you want to play with my existing work, you're welcome to checkout, but I warn you that Samba 4.6 or later
presents real dependency issues.
