[Samba] Building source rpms does not build all the rpms.

The official Samba-Team RPM puts all files you need into one (1) binary
RPM package for Red Hat Linux systems.

Red Hat split this into several separate packages.

If you perform and RPM update with just the .i386.rpm package it should
auto-remove all the older samba packages that Red Hat installed.
