You probably have some old smbmount binary somewhere or if you compiled
your own you didn't configure samba to compile smbmount (you need to add
a --with-smbmount to ./configure).

If you configured it right you can use the 'which' command to tell you
which program it runs:

% which smbmount

Find the old version and remove the binaries for that (smbmount, smbmnt,
mount.smbfs. well, the last one should just be a symlink but check that
it points to the new smbmount).
