Hi bob, 

I suggest, you stick on 4.3.0, if you use my script. 
I dont advice to compile yourself, but thats what you want. 

You can use an unmodified packages also, but you need 2 or 3 packages from debian sid/experimental 

To keep is all safe do the following. 
Create an preferences file so you can ping the experimental repo. 
cat << EOF >> /etc/apt/preferences.d/experimental-samba
Package: *
Pin: release n=jessie,o=Debian
Pin-Priority: 500

Package: *
Pin: release n=jessie,l=Debian-Security
Pin-Priority: 500

Package: *
Pin: release n=jessie-updates
Pin-Priority: 500

Package: *
Pin: release n=jessie-backports
Pin-Priority: 400

Package: *
Pin: release a=testing
Pin-Priority: 100

Package: *
Pin: release a=unstable
Pin-Priority: 50

Package: *
Pin: release a=experimental
Pin-Priority: 400


cat << EOF >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/experimental.list
deb http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian/ experimental main non-free contrib
deb-src http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian/ experimental main non-free contrib

Run apt-get update && apt-get upgrade. 
Of ok, you wil not see an upgrade ( wel at least nog from experimental ) 

Now, type 
apt-get build-dep samba
apt-get source samba -b

and you have your samba debs when finished. 
If it did complain about some packages, install them like 
apt-get install -t experimental PACKAGE_NAME
