It should also be done for smbumount (which btw is also meant to be made
suid root to allow user umounts). I sent this patch with some smbmount
stuff to samba-patches some days ago, but maybe that place is dead:

I didn't remove includes.h either.

Speaking of smbmnt, the current RPM .spec files place smbmnt in /usr/sbin,
but smbmount looks for it in /usr/bin (BINDIR). The above patch fixes that
so it also looks in SBINDIR but the current rpms are wrong and won't work
when smbmount is started from mount.
(Recent mount's unset parts of the environment, PATH, LD_*, etc)
