Dave C-B has previously posted here details of an smbsh redesign that
would allow preloading of libsmbwrapper.so to work under Linux in spite
of the glibc changes.  In fact, it would work better, as his design
doesn't require *any* of the current autoconf checks for systems that
support dlsym(RTLD_NEXT).  That includes Linux, the BSDs, and Solaris,
AIUI, and possibly other systems where smbsh is currently used.

It's simply a matter of digging in and recoding libsmbwrapper.
