Using a self-compiled version of Samba will work with the OS packages
installed, provided the PATH is set up correctly and the required
libnss_winbind links are set up correctly as well.

It does look like this is the problem, but one other thing I would
check, is nscd running, if so, turn it off, winbind has its own cache.

It might also help if the OP posted their smb.conf
