Most probely, ( and not, i dont know everything here.).. 
But, some libs like : libsamba-passdb.so dont have numbers at the end.
Like libsamba-passdb.so.1 i see these warnings also while building.

Same here. Im a noob in buildin from sources..

#waving hi.. 

What i suggest to try, add the source line in apt also. 
Now, what might be a bit tricky.  The samba depends, IF you need to rebuild it.
And i suggest try first if it runs. 
Yes, even if you run ubuntu..  And if it runs, then start rebuilding. 

Now, i just added this to my repo, 

The content explains enough, short version.

Pull the sources and add them in the order of building.
And show the minimal samba requirement to build it with OS supplied packages. 
or mine, even if you remove mine this still works. 

If you just : 
cd 01-talloc
apt-get build-dep talloc
apt-get source talloc -b

It already rebuilds. 

Repeat for the others.. 
And, for every *.deb you builded, add these to a folder and create a local repo
Include this and repaet it every step. 

Thats.. About this. 
mkdir $HOME/local-repo
cp *.deb $HOME/local-repo/

cd $HOME/local-repo/
apt-ftparchive packages ./ > Packages
echo "deb [trusted=yes] file://$HOME/local-repo/ ./" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/local.list
apt-get update


Good luck..
