Just following the documentation helps for sure. Of course a BFS Samba 
works on Ubuntu 12.04.

As to "idmap_ad on FreeBSD with Samba 4 doesn't work" - well, never 
trust a Makefile you haven't
written yourself :D

You have to select


when you do the make config in net/samba41 port directory. If you don't, 
the idmap_ad
module won't get installed. And having that one certainly helps if you 
intend to use idmap_ad...

I'll try to reach the FreeBSD Samba folks if they have any plans to move 
idmap_ad out of the
experimental stage soon (with 4.2 perhaps). Having an option for Active 
Directory client support
that's broken by default isn't likely to help you make friends.
