I managed to get around this by installing an older samba package, getting
that to work, then doing a [sudo make install] which overwrites the old
samba package.

To start the service in the way you are trying to do it, you will need
service definition scripts installed in appropriate places.
They are OS distribution-specific, not necessarily included in the source,
and/or not installed by default.
