Franta, if you're trying to build on Fedora 29, would you consider
trying my "master" branch of https://github.com/nkadel/samba4repo ?
I've been trying to update it to 4.9.5, and a separate branch for
4.10.0, with Fedora 29 and the RHEL 8 beta lately. The Python3
requirements of 4.10.0 are a serious problem for RHEL 7, but there are
othe issues for Fedora for that even more recent release.

Also, unless you actually build and install RPM's a manual build is
vulnerable to all sorts of PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH issues if any if
the original RPM's are sstill present on Fedora and RHEL.
