[jonas@gnu.org: Bug#162956: libsmbclient-dev: libsmbclient.h doesn't work without client.h]

I imagine those who favor the use of libsmbclient might be interested to
know that the header files are currently in disarray.  I've verified that
this is also a problem in 3.0alpha20.

Should libsmbclient.h duplicate the functionality of client.h, or does
client.h need to be pulled in as a dependency of libsmbclient.h?

Package: libsmbclient-dev
Version: 2.999+3.0cvs20020906-1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

When I recently did an upgrade of the system, a new libsmbclient was
installed that introduced a problem, namely that libsmbclient.h (line
199) accessed a structure called cli_state. This structure is not defined
anywhere, which causes compilation to fail when using libsmbclient.h.

When looking around, it appears that this structure is defined in
client.h, however, I can not find this file in any other Debian package
either. If I use a client.h from the samba source package, this
introduces additional requirements, so all in all, I'd think that
libsmbclient-dev ought to include several more header files, or the
appropriate definitions inserted into libsmbclient.h :-)
