No, its not nitpicking, the OP has an AD DC that is working as
recommended, but the OP wants to also use it as a fileserver, so he
needs to configure it a bit more. The only problem he really has is,
he used the wrong version of Samba.

You can do what you like, but running 'make install' is just as easy as
downloading the latest Samba tarball, compiling it into an RPM and then
installing that RPM.

You, being (by the sound of it) a Red-Hat user, will very well know
that you cannot create an AD DC with Red-Hat packages yet, so, unless
you configure it differently, Samba puts everything into
