If  you type "git branch" what does it tell you?   Also, what does "git
branch -r" tell you?  I expect you'll see that your current branch (shown in
the first command) isn't actually the v4-0-test branch.  I'm willing to be
proven wrong, though. :-)

The last parameter to git-clone is the name of the directory to create for
the clone, not anything to do with which branch is checked out.  So it looks
like the default branch that you have checked out is one of the more recent
v3-* branches.

Yes, all of those libsmb-* files are libsmbclient.
