If you build from current Git it compiles both Samba 3 and Samba 4.  I
believe the idea is that Samba 4 will be just the Active Directory
functionality while Samba 3 will be the file/print server (and I
suppose WINS).

I have not tried this combined Samba, because my Samba 4 installation
has been working fine for a few months.  I am not using it for
file/print sharing.  Only authentication.

I do not have any workstations joined to the domain (except for
testing purposes).
