Umph. I don't think it's ever done any of that, although I can't
answer definitively.

Things like startup scripts are pretty much the realm of the disty;
given that it could be in a completely different place and use
completely different conventions depending on whether it's BSD or SVR4
style, it would be tricky to do it in the make install stage.

Normally you'd be installing over the top of an existing install, so
if you configured the install to be in the same place as the existing
samba you wouldn't have to change much. Because you've configured it
to /usr/local/samba/... it's a bit more difficult.
