[Samba] Unable to open configuration file "/anywhere i specify"

What switches did you include when you "configured" Samba??

This is my command line when I ran configure:

./configure  --prefix=/usr --with-lockdir=/var/lock/samba
--with-privatedir=/etc/samba --with-swatdir=/usr/share/swat
--with-smbmount --with-configdir=/etc/samba

This will make all "Samba" programs to look for smb.conf in the
/etc/samba directory.

My apologies - I let that error slip.  It does the same anywhere:

[root][/etc]: testparm /etc/smb.conf
Load smb config files from /etc/smb.conf
params.c:OpenConfFile() - Unable to open configuration file
Error loading services.

[root][/etc]: pwd && ls -all | grep smb
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root         1243 Aug 12 18:42 smb.conf
