Yes, but there isn't much point now, Louis has released his Ubuntu
packages and these will replace any ubuntu packages already installed.

No, this is more in Andrews field of expertise than mine, but I don't
really understand why you require this. It is really meant to ensure
that the developers don't break things, it isn't required to run Samba

I only built Samba 4.10.0 using the FHS because it seemed it was a
problem, I normally just build Samba into /usr/local/samba but I don't
build it much nowadays, I use Louis's packages ;-)
As for an 'fhs' build, this may just work, but if you have an earlier
Samba version installed before the build, then watch out for updates.
If you build into /usr/local/samba then various things do not work as
As for backporting packages from Disco, it isn't quite straight
forward, 18.04 comes with python3.6 and 18.10 comes with python3.7,
so a few files have to be modified.
