The parsing functions are in params.c.  loadparams.c does the job of
figuring out the semantics of the parameters and building the internal

smb.h and includes.h have a lot of stuff that is specific to Samba as a
whole.  If you really just want to parse files that are in smb.conf format,
then you may be better off without those include files.
