Question unable to load samba4 using SAMBA AD DC HOWTO: seems to be bad instructions???

I am somewhat new to linux/samba. I have read many good articles about samba but still can't get it to work. Here is the steps and problem:

1. Loaded ubuntu 12.04 server (no problem, only loaded the ssh)* - read in an instruction on the website to only load the ssh server.
2. Downloaded samba using the following command: [I]git clone git:// samba-master[I]
* how to download git first (not in instruction)
3. Changed directory to samba-master (used the command cd /samba-master)
4. used the command: .configure --enable-debug --enable-selftest
got the following errors:
/home/glynn/samba-master/wscript:92: error: configuration failed (see '/home/glynn/samba-master/bin/config.log')

When it was compiling I saw several files go by with "not found" the last line shows the following:

checking for custom code :could not find the python development header

Some of the last things shown is:
checking for library python2.7 :not found
checking for library python2.7 : yes
checking for program python2.7-config : not found
checking for program python-config-2.7 :not found

Sorry for such a long explaination but need to see what I can do. As I said earlier "I am a newbie" I am trying to find out if this will work for us instead of "Windows" We need to see if we can set this up to connect to 8 Window 7 computers. If there is a better way to set this up that will work please let me know.

Thank you for your assistance in advance.

I see on your previous post that you have .configure --enable-debug --enable-selftest, it should be ./configure --enable-deug --enable-selftest. Notice the / that was added in front of the configure. The --enable-debug and --enable-selftest pieces aren't even necessary, they simply help diagnose problems that may arise in the future.

Also, did you install the prerequisite software? A list can be found on this page
