There's something I saw a short while ago called Rumba. (Samba, Rumba, oh  
well.) You can find it in:

It was written for NeXTSTEP, but it works fine under FreeBSD too. It is a  
translation layer between user level NFS and SMB, so should be quite  
portable. According to the readme, there are a few problems with different fs  
semantics for SMB and NFS.

Haven't tried it yet, so can't comment on how stable it is.

Best regards,
