I've met this beast before. Location of smbpasswd is a configure-time
option, you have two options really :
1. (easiest) make a link, rather than copy i.e. "ln -s /etc/smb.conf
/usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf" or "ln -s /usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf
/etc/smb.conf" depending on which way you want to point.
2. (recommended) rerun configure with the option --with-configdir=/etc
Hope this helps.
