In my particular situation, removing the rpm also removed the 
/var/log/samba dir and all subtrees, so if you want the log history of 
the machines, back that up first, and restore after removing the rpm.  
Otherwise, you must create the /var/log/samba directory.

Also, for the Redhat/Fedora users, you will want to backup the 
/etc/init.d/smbd script and then restore and edit to point to the 
/usr/local/samba/sbin directory.  Other than that, the migration was 
quite painless, and now I'm finally running an up to date samba with an 
up to date samba-vscan vfs plugin.
