I haven't got access to RHEL 8, but using Rocky Linux 8, I can build Samba.
First, have you downloaded and run the Centos 8 bootstrap script you can
Have you actually installed python3 ?
yum install @python36
and then set RHEL to use it with:
alternatives --config python
After that, downloading and unpacking Samba should allow you to build it.
