Could it be a python 2.6 compatibility issue ?

Objet: [Samba] samba-tool error just after samba 4.8.0 install

Hi all,

I just compiled and installed samba 4.8.0 on my centos 6.9 server.
After installation I wanted to run samba-tool dbcheck but it fails with the following message even when running samba-tool --help :

[root at frtlse-srv018 samba-4.8.0]# samba-tool --help
ERROR(<type 'exceptions.SyntaxError'>): uncaught exception - invalid syntax (ms_schema.py, line 280)
  File "/usr/bin/samba-tool", line 44, in <module>
    retval = cmd._run("samba-tool", subcommand, *args)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/samba/netcmd/__init__.py", line 223, in _run
    cmd = self.subcommands[cmd_name]

    fromlist=['cmd_%s' % attr]),

  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/samba/schema.py", line 28, in <module>
    from samba.ms_schema import read_ms_schema

here is the configure command I use : ./configure --enable-fhs --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --libdir=/usr/lib64 --with-lockdir=/var/cache/samba
