No major Distributions yet include a full version of Samba 4.0 at this
stage, as far as I'm aware.  (There are major issues for all
distributions in integrating the whole of Samba 4.0, if the distribution
either has an objection to our Heimdal Kerberos bundle or is packaging
Samba 3.6 alongside)

This will change, but using 'samba4' packages from the repositories is
sadly not the simple way to obtain Samba 4.0.
