At a guess, I'd say that there was something wrong with either Samba or
whatever is acting as primary domain controller.

Make sure that /usr/local/etc/smb.conf and (if you are using the smbpasswd)
/usr/local/etc/samba/smbpasswd still exist and are accessible.

If you enabled the swat option when building samba, you can also go to
http://localhost:901 to see what samba thinks its configuration it.
