In general it is in my belief not broken, and even the generic Samba 
packages that come with RHEL 6.2 and it's rebuilds work for me against 
our 2008R2 AD.

What I would say is that this bit of Samba configuration is poorly 
documented and seems to keep changing between releases, so a working 
config on 3.5 is bust on 3.6 etc.

Trying to compile 3.4.8 on anything is a really retrograde step anyway 
given that you will be making your box open to a remote root compromise...
