you *want* to remove winbind, you just don't know it - your new build 
*will provide* winbind in a matching version and hence you should learn 
building packages (and in case of overrides you start with the exact way 
the disribution built the specific package, in that case samab and it'sd 
sub-packages) and override the distro package in a clean way so that 
there is a chance that other packages which require some samba 
dependencies are satisfied

that may not always be possible because so-name dependencies but that's 
another point of packages - the apckage manager won't let you install 
conflicting packages while a dumb "make install" don't and can't care 
about system integrity
