That's your problem right there. RPM systems should have software
installed by RPM only or you end up with situations like this. When you
install from source the package manager doesn't have the proper entries
placed in its databases. RPM doesn't search for the existance of a
particular file, it searches for the existance of a particular package.

As it should.

Go download a .src.rpm file for samba and install that, which will give
you the setup for making a custom RPM file. Now edit the spec file for
the changes you would like to make. Just to be safe you should probably
also increment the build number, that way you'll be sure that you don't
get overwritten by an older but higher-than-default revisioned build
from the official yum/up2date archives Build the rpm and install that
package. This should make sure that the entries are in the PM database.
