Remove smbwrapper?

   It works fine on Solaris 8 through 10, but I haven't built it
lately because it defaults to off instead of auto in Configure.
   That discourages me from noticing bugs, you see (;-))

   As it happens, it only uses a small subset of the functionality
of loadparm, and therefor doesn't need the dependency on
tdb that the samba server requires.  Indeed, it seems odd to me
that it depend on smb.conf at all!  It's not a server, after all.
