We have a lot of servers to do this on, but largely it is not a problem for out linux and BSD servers. The problem is our OpenServer 6 boxes (of which we have a lot). OpenServer 6 comes with samba 3.0.6, which is too old to support smbv2 or better, and my admittedly feeble attempts to compile a newer version from source have failed miserably.

I don't know if my answer will be helpful for you, but since no one else

I admit I had to google up OpenServer first, since the last time I heard
that name was at least 10 years ago... Looks like OpenServer 6 really
hasn't had any updates since the last maintenance pack, which is from
2009 (!). Except for a new "Definitive" Release which prepares to
upgrade to OpenServer 10. I believe you will have a lot more serious
security problems there besides SMBv1.

It's just a wild guess, but I imagine that compilation fails because the
libraries that samba needs are way outdated, too. You could try to
compile these from sources, too, but you might quickly end up compiling
half of the system from scratch and possibly break it.

If you can't abandon these boxes, upgrading to OpenServer 10 might be
your best choice. Their website states that OpenServer 10 gives you
access to FreeBSD ports. There you would find Samba 4.4.15, 4.5.12 and 4.6.6
