Steve, if you download the RC1 from 
compile it as usual and then provision, but with the new style provision:

samba-tool domain provision --realm=<your realm> --domain=<YOURDOMAIN> 
--adminpass=<pass> --use-rfc2307 --server-role=dc

into smb.conf and works provided that you put the servers ipaddress into 
/etc/resolv.conf not
