It depends what you intend to do with samba.
A good start could be the first part of "samba 3 by example"
6 implementations are described so that you can choose the closest
to your needs; after that the options become clearer.

If it is just for testing samba without a particular goal in mind yet,
I guess you probably can enable everything.
The other way round would be compiling with no options and when
you're stuck with something you can't do, recompile with the correct

You chould check
 LDAP            if you want to store users and machines in LDAP
 ADS             if you want your samba server joined to a windows AD domain
 CUPS            if you want a print server
 WINBIND         if windows will store users who will ues your samba server
 ACL_SUPPORT     if you want windows-type ACLs
