Did you used exactly the same ./configure options, like in the 4.1.9
build? Then Samba and its libraries will be installed into the same
directories, like it was before and replaces everything.

It looks like, some parameters were different and you're still trying to
start the old binary.

Can you start
# /usr/local/samba/bin/samba
directly (bypass your $PATH variable). Or where ever you have it installed.

There's a "make uninstall". I never used it. After a backup, you can try
it and then install the old version over or reinstall 4.1.13 with the
same ./configure options, like 4.1.9 had.
