If you like a challenge, you could probably get past these issues, but
be warned that even running an upstream Samba release on FreeBSD has
had its challenges from time to time, and this will be harder.

It has been a long time since I remember an active developer doing the
work to make MacOS go, and most of that went into the darwin port, not
upstream so has been lost.
