If the install's are not too old just update you git tree with "git
pull". Then do this from your root tree, you can no longer build from
the source4 directory:

make clean

./configure.developer --disable-s3build


Then make a backup copy of /usr/local/samba
remove the following directiries
rm -Rf /usr/local/samba/bin
rm -Rf /usr/local/samba/sbin
rm -Rf /usr/local/samba/include
rm -Rf /usr/local/samba/modules
rm -Rf /usr/local/samba/lib
rm -Rf /usr/local/samba/share

make install

start samba

If your installation is too old then you will need to use the
upgradeprovision script, but I have never got it work.
