[Samba] Samba 4 RPMs for RHEL 6

My apologies if this is something of a FAQ, but I would be grateful of 
some assistance. I am evaluating Samba 4 and would like to be able to 
create packages for installation on RHEL and CentOS 6.x servers. I've 
cloned the git repository and checked out tag 4.0.9, then used the 
"./packaging/RHEL-CTDB/makerpms.sh" script to build the RPMs. The 
process succeeds but the packages, while labelled 4.0.9, are not Samba 4 

Closer inspection of the spec file indicates that this is only geared 
towards Samba 3 builds. Have I missed something in the process of 
creating these packages? Is there a better way for me to proceed? For 
the moment, I'm just using make && make install on the servers but would 
like to move away from this mode.
