However, after compiling, installing, and provisioning, with no errors, samba4 won't start correctly.  I did a few tests by installing from scratch, on the same server each of the following versions (4.0.17, 4.0.18, 4.0.19, and 4.1.9), and got the same errors in log.samba.  Samba4.0.16, on the same server runs flawlessly.  I'm running on Centos6.5_64 with the latest updates as of today.  I've spend a few days with Google, but I couldn't find anything helpful.

Try 'interfaces =' (or whatever your address is).
I think I saw a patch for this (IPv6 found but not running) on the
samba-technical list recently.
