If you still have the source that you ran "make install" from then you
should be able to run "make uninstall" to remove the old version

See: https://github.com/samba-team/samba/blob/master/Makefile

So, download the new source, configure and make it.  Run the uninstall
on the old version and then make install on the new one.

I notice that the Makefile goes on about something called waf so things
have changed since I last compiled Samba!  So let's look in buildtools/
...  oh a README ... follow the link to code.google ... 404.

Sorry, I'm out!
