have a look into the mail I just posted on freebsd-questions, it
includes links to the samba wiki where installation is explained in

> And your smb.conf and loop script?
the loop script is a bash with the following command running:
	'while (true); do samba -i -M single; done'
this restarts samba4 whenever it crashes immediately.

my smb.conf is very simplistic as there aren't that may options you can
choose in samba4 (due to being in heavy development). 
maybe one thing that you should be aware of is, that UFS does not
support extend file attributes as linux does. so you need to save this
informations into a file. the correct procedure is described in the
samba4 howto article within the samba wiki

sorry for not providing my smb.conf, but the server is out of my reach
at the moment. If you have any questions about the setup drop me an
email, maybee I can help you.
