No, the source is fine.

When you run './configure --help' what does it say for "prefix"?
Can you find the files there?

Making some symlinks from /usr/local/bin or simply adding
/usr/local/samba/bin to the path should solve the problem. Of course
servers should be started with full path, /usr/local/samba/bin/smbd -D, to
avoid path related problems.

Another option might be 'find / -name smbd'  :)
