as the subject already tells you:

is it better (and "cleaner") to build samba v3 always as RPM and install 
it or - in case of an update of samba - simply overwrite the existing 
version with "configure && make && make install" ?

normally there aren't too many changes in the paths of the 
install-scripts, so that all (old) samba files are correctly overwritten

what would you suggest?
