well, there is nothing different when you use rpmbuild and chose the 
prefix you want besides that:

* cleanup of orphan files
* simpe upgarde/downgrade because you have your prebuild .rpm files
* no need of devel-packages / compilers on the target machine
* no need to --exclude=/usr/local/smaba/var/lib/samba fpr rsync
   if you build on a different machine because rpm don't touch
   files which it didn't create
* easy re-use on serveral machines including a testing-one

the only real difference is that "make install" goes into the 
buildfolder - i don't see any advantage in "as it emphasizes that this 
Samba install is not created from packages" since for a decade now i 
override postfix, mysql, httpd, apr, php and so on on Fedora with self 
built packages and a higher epoch in the rpm-spec so that the own repos win
