Forgot to copy the list.

Try the waf build. It works for me and I believe most of the Samba4
developers are using that now. It will probably become the official
method soon.

i.e. I did something like:

$ cd /path/to/samba
$ git pull
$ export PATH=`pwd`/buildtools/bin:$PATH
$ cd source4
$ waf configure --prefix=... --enable-developer
$ waf
$ sudo -i
# cd /path/to/samba
# export PATH=`pwd`/buildtools/bin:$PATH
# cd source4
# waf install

That's off the top of my head, but I think it's right.
