To install a package FreeBSD you can either compile it from scratch, or
install as a binary built by someone else.

My server does not use the ZFS system. And it was provisioned into an
existing domain.

"Samba installs the required files"
"use the last

is all music to my ears, especially "samba_upgradedns." Your kind reply 
prevents me from "barking up the wrong tree," and wasting time searching
for answers in ISC-Bind instead of samba.
