Well, if you will not compile the latest & greatest Samba 4, you might 
as well use the latest available deb from here: http://enterprisesamba.com/
You will have to register, but will get 4.0.10 which is the latest in 
the 4.0 series.

I still think that you would be better off compiling it yourself, it is 
very very easy.
