yes it does.  it sends debug log output to stdout.  unfortunately, it
reads lib/smb.conf.  so, if you have "debug level = 0" in smb.conf, you
will find that you get a few lines of debug output, and then it suddenly

likewise, if you have "debug level = 10" in smb.conf, and you run
smbclient with -d 0 you will get nothing, and then all of a sudden see
loads of debug output.

i've modified BRANCH_NTDOM smbclient version so that it takes the debug
level from smb.conf _except_ when you specify the level on the command
line (-d nnn)
