What libraries libsmbclient needs to be linked to?

Hi all!

Quite silly question:

I'm trying to (re)make a separate package for 
libsmbclient, so it can be installed in the system without 
server part of the samba. The thing is, that if you have 
Kerberos and LDAP libraries in the system, they'll be 
linked against libsmbclient.

My question is - is it really necessary? Does libsmbclient 
part actuall use LDAP and Kerberos for it's client 
functions or it's just relict of linking them against the 
server part? I.e. would the functionality of libsmbclient 
be truncated, if  not to link against this libraries :)? 
The same question applies to samba-python :)

With regards,
Timur Bakeyev.
