That's where it is on the RH6 system I'm sending this note from.
But I build Samba with one eye on the RPM spec file, and the
other one on my local notions about where things should
be.  From the current spec file, it looks like it should be
in /usr/sbin:

for i in smbd nmbd swat smbmount smbumount smbmnt debug2html winbindd
install -m755 source/bin/$i $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{prefix}/sbin

(That's from samba-2.2.4/packaging/RedHat/samba2.spec.)

Does "locate" find it?
