No, unless underlying system supports it.
Samba starting with 3.0 and onwards uses iconv(3) whenever possible.
Therefore, you need to have underlying iconv(3) implementation to support
UTF-8-Mac. It is not in glibc yet AFAIK.
May be Conrad could add some on this but from what I see in Darwin 8.1
samba modifications, it just uses underlying UTF-8-MAC implementation in
Darwin's charsets code via special macosxfs charset module which just remaps
Samba iconv code to differently expressed Darwin's API.
