I personally would recommend that using Debian 7.5 with samba from 
backports is the way to go, you get a supported OS and a very recent 
samba 4 package with the various parts put into places that users are 
used to them being i.e. samba-tool is in /usr/bin rather than being in 
/usr/local/samba/bin which is not in path.
