If you can spend the time, actually bother to make an RPM for CentOS
6. It can take some time, but will help publish all the relevant
dependencies and keep track of them if other software changes. It will
also track, and replace, the documentation in /usr/share/man.

If you have to build one yourself from scratch for testing, put it  in
"/usr/local" and the man pages in "/usr/local/man", to avoid
conflicting with something published as an RPM or pulled in by an RPM

If you really want to work with Samba 4.1.x on CentOS 6 or RHEL 6,
I've got the whole buld requirements and toolchain available at
https://github.com/nkadel/samba4repo/, for building up all the
necessary RPM's.
