smbpasswd "codepage.850" error

When I use the smbpasswd utility that came with
samba-1.9.18p5-1, I get the following error:

load_client_codepage: filename /etc/codepages/codepage.850 
does not exist.

It's true. There is no /etc/codepages directory.

If you have one, maybe it belongs to an rpm package, and
you can tell me which one
(rpm -qvf /etc/codepages/codepage.850 to see)? 

Or is this a direct product of samba, and I don't have it
because I used an rpm, and didn't compile it myself?
