You might need to do a build-depends before you try to build Samba.

You might choose to get the deb-src package for 3.0.2a and transfer the
Debian directory to the 3.0.4 source. This is a very quick workaround...
do the proper editing for 3.0.4 and all things should build very well.
They did for me.
