Samba2.0.6 tgz compile questions.

After fighting with trying to rebuiled my src.rpm file. I decided to use a
plain old
fashion compile from the tar files.  which worked ok, no settings changed.
at about 11pm last night I finished and noticed a few things that made me a

1)  all the Samba bin files were installed in /usr/local/samba/..
2)  no smb.conf file was created.

I used   ./configure, make , make install when I think I should have used 
a one of the scripts./  If I create an smb.conf file should I be ok.   and
should I use swat to create it ?

regarding building the rpm the path /usr/src/SuSE/RPMS does not exist
I used the find and whereis command to locate the new rpm to no avail.
would the fact that specific path affect the rebuild, and would creating 
the path alleviate the problem.

also how do you change the list function from digest to normmal ??

rpm --rebuild filename.src.rpm
then look into /usr/src/<your-dist>/RPMS/i386/
for the binary rpm.
