Well I'm looking for something usefull too. There's this libsmb++ project : 
http://libsmb.sourceforge.net, but it's not completely finished :(

I've been thinking about building a lib myself (in C), which would have 
generic open/read/close etc functions, however, I'm not quite sure whether to 
use the samba_2_2 branch or the SAMBA_TNG branch. There a problems with both 

Well, let me know what your ideas are,
