smbclient no longer respects the -p flag

In the rush to get things out and convert smbclient to better code, we have
eliminated the ability of smbclient to connect on ports other than 139.

No big deal you say?  Well, lots of documentation claims that it listens to
-p flag, and I wanted to use it to test out a SSL proxy for accessing Samba
with SSL switched on, and found to my horror, it was ignored.

Hacked back in now in a gentle way.  Will upload fixes in a couple of weeks.
