Subject: [Samba] Disabling symlink following client side?

Is there any way to specify in smb.conf that you don't want to follow
symbolic links, or to somehow disable this in smbclient? I have an smb
file indexer, and whenever it hits a linux box with a symlink pointing
to the current directory, it creates thousands of extra entries. I'd
like to be able to simply not follow symbolic links, as I have no way of
disabling the "follow symlinks" option on the server.
