When I start Samba after building, I get a message that  smb.conf not found in /usr/local/lib/samba not in

It's a bug in that --with-fhs will not let you overreide 
the defaults (even if you don't enable that option).

You have to use --with-configdir=<path>.  
Or you can do something like:

  ./configure --sysconfdir=/etc --with-configdir=@sysconfdir@/samba
