Unfortunately somewhere between 4.0.0 and 4.0.3. they introduced now
related package dependencies on  libtalloc, libtdb, libtevent,
iniparser, and krb5. So the RHEL 6.4 inlcudes krb5-1.10, which
eliminates one problem, but doesn't resolve the others. That's why I
put updates for those as well up at https://github.com/nkadel/ and
into the Samba repository building tools at

Since building with "mock" relies on CentOS, or Scientific Linux or a
local RHEL yum repo, to have the updated packages, it's going to be a
while before the new RHEL 6.4 packages are broadly available anyway.
I'll yank them from github.com if and as they become available as part
of 6.4 releases.

Those are new enough for Samba 4.0.0, not for Samba 4.0.3.
