 Thank for write me back.

 So I have to search for compat-gnutls34 and compat-nettle3 package and install both of then; next run:

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib64/compat-gnutls34/pkgconfig:/usr/lib64/compat-nettle32/pkgconfig

and finally run:

./configure && make && make install

from samba-4.12.3 extracted directory to install samba4

 That is it?
