You need a file ~/.smb/smb.conf
A symbolic link to the global smb.conf should work, or you supply your 
own minimal config file.

I think you need at least the following parameters:

   workgroup = WORKGROUP
   name resolve order = lmhosts wins bcast
# "wins support" if you are running your libsmbclient program on the
#  wins server
;  wins support = yes
# "wins server" should always work (instead of "wins support")
#  set the ip of your wins server here...
   wins server =
