If I do a which smbmnt it comes back


So it does seem to be in my path
and I am running version samba-2.2.2 for everything.  It was not an
upgrade.  I have uninstalled and re-installed a couple of times and still
the same error

You didn't do the same thing on the two installations.

For some reason smbmnt isn't in your path on the machine where it doesn't
work. Fix the path or copy/symlink smbmnt to where it will be found.

smbmount tries to run smbmnt and uses execvp to do that.
