On the other hand, since python3 is a 'foreign' passenger to RHEL7, if you 
just wanted Samba 4.10.x on el7/centos7, it would be much simplier to just 
consume the python2 system default. This is what I'm doing on el7 to build 
without EPEL:
%if 0%{?fedora} || 0%{?rhel} > 7
%global with_python3 1
%global with_python3 0

And 'samba-tool' dns seems to work fine (for me) on python2. To be 
honnest, the only major change I saw in the compile process for 4.10.x was that one 
of the required library updates depended on a more recent make of cmake3 
(for which I am now providing as SPEC and src.rpm from the above repo as 
well). But aside from that, the process was mostly a matter of updating 
tdb,talloc,ldb,tevent and friends.
