Have you tried looking in '/usr/local/samba' ?

 From how you say you built samba, that is where you should find it.

Well it wouldn't exist, the compile doesn't create one, how could it, 
how could it know what you are going to run samba as.
You will also need to create an init script to start samba in your 
chosen role.

Yes, it is the samba wiki:
