Why don't you just use the official 3.5.5 source and build the rpms from
that? Oh yeah - the official makerpm.sh is buggy...

You should be able to...

cd samba-3.5.5/packaging/RHEL
sh makerpms.sh

...however the samba.spec is slightly broken. Find attached the altered
version I've made - allows me to compile 3.5.5 under CentOS-4.8 and
CentOS-5.4. I'll also upload it to bugzilla
