latest cvs version of samba, the latest BRANCH_NTDOM cvs version of samba,
not the latest main-branch cvs version of samba.

ok, the story is that until _both_ smbclient and smbd are moved over to
the main branch, i am reluctant to work on smbclient (in BRANCH_NTDOM) and
smbd (in the main branch).

therefore, i am still working in BRANCH_NTDOM - for about another two

i just decided to add all the BRANCH_NTDOM smbclient code in such a way
that it can be compiled completely separately from the current (legacy)
smbclient code, pending proper testing / review.

the reason i have had to do this is because BRANCH_NTDOM smbclient has
dce/rpc code in it; the main branch smbclient does not, and cannot be made
to do so.
