There should be a client/testsmbc target in the Makefile that will build
the library for you and will also build the testsmbc program.

There is also a client/tree.c, but there is no target at present.

Once you get those built, move include/libsmbclient.h to an include
directory near you, and move bin/ to your favo[u]rite
location and you should be ready ...
