Well, you could just simplify the installation!
Make a tar image of a minimal member server,
rooted at /, so that you have the /etc/rc3.d/sXXsamba.server
startup files plus all the binaries and config stuff,
all with proper permissions.
This should make installations trivial: it's a variant
on how .pkg files work.
In principle, you untar on the target machine, start swat
on your admin machine pointed at the target machine,
apply machine-specific changes and disconnect. About
10 minutes total.
