under most linux distros a handy util is which, which tells you which file 
is first in your path.

if you only have one samba install, the following command will tell you 
where it is (if it is in your path) :

which smbd

if not, you can always try :

locate smbd

if that finds nothing that's executable :

updatedb; locate smbd  OR  find / | grep smbd

they do exactly the same thing, but the former saves the entire tree to the 
locate database, so you can do a locate anything!

I am not a member of the samba team,
and anything that I say may not be as
accurate as a response from one of the
team.  I reply to save those more
qualified time, which can more usefully
be spent developing SAMBA further.
