For me It worked allways this way:

Download the latest gzipped release of samba 4.
Untar it to a new directory.
Stop your current samba instance. Backup your /usr/local/samba or wherever
samba is running.
Compile samba with the same param as you did before within the new
Configure, make, make install.
Restart samba: test samba -V
And if nothing went wrong you are up and running.

No, the compilation of the new version is linking against the installed
libraries of the old version rather than the ones it just built.
