[Samba] Samba 4 compile instructions

Sorry for the delay...

I downloaded the latest stable Samba v4.0 via git and prepared a branch to work with locally.  I was able to configure and perform make quicktest without error.  I then tried to create the binaries with sudo make, which reported the build finished successfully.

When I configured samba 4 I set prefix=/usr/local/samba4 in order to install/test without removing my current samba 3.4.7.

Can I keep my current Samba installed but disabled while testing samba4?

Are you running the current version from GIT?

We are long overdue with making another Samba4 release, and the last alpha is quite old now.  Please try again with the current version in our GIT tree.
