Somewhere in the documentation (don't remember exactly where) it
states that smbmount is not really supported by the samba team so it's
not enabled by default; however, you can pass some options to the
configure script to get it.  I did this and made a RPM on a RH
5.2/2.2.x kernel machine using the shell script included with samba to
make a RPM.  This is the first time I've done this so I don't
guarantee it's perfect, but it seems to work for me.  I can make this
RPM available if anyone is interested.
