Hi Sérgio, Andrew and Rommel,

Sorry to the join the discussion so late.
Yes, compat-* packages are the right way to solve that for RHEL7/Centos7 
(until people can upgrade to RHEL8/Centos8). Of course, like Andrew says, 
the consequence is that those compat\* packages must be maintained by the 
package maintainers (in case a security issue comes up).

I compiled samba-4.12.3 for RHEL7 a few days ago and placed the repo here:

I'll probably update the packages soonish because I found a couple minor 
dependency issues..
