Not supported by smbfs.

If you have ssh access to the server you could tunnel it by:
    ssh -L 1139:xx.xx.xx.xx:139 xx.xx.xx.xx
and in a separate shell:
    smbmount //patim/soft /tmp/mnt -o username=oskar,ip=,port=1139

Still not ssl, but it is encrypted if that is what you were looking for.
Perhaps there is some ssl tunneling tool that can do the same thing.
