Those are the required packages to build samba4, you do of course need
to install 'build essentials' etc as well.
So, provided you downloaded the samba4 tarball, unpacked it and then
moved into the unpacked dir before running:
./configure && make && make install
You should have '/usr/local/samba'
If, as you say, you haven't got the samba dir, this would tend to say
something went wrong.
If '/usr/local/samba' doesn't exist, I would check that all the required
packages are installed, make sure I was in the unpacked samba directory
and then run the compile instructions one by one:
Only run the next instruction if the last one completed successfully
(mind you, '&&' is supposed to do this), if you are running the
instructions as a normal user, you will probably have to run the last
one with sudo i.e. 'sudo make install'
You could also check if Apparmor is running, this may stop the samba dir
