FW: [Samba] What version started building libsmbclient.so?

Ok, I have been doing a lot of reading and saw many references to samba
2.2.8a and libsmbclient.so and I thought that I would just go ahead and
download, compile and install it.  After going through configure, the make
and make install, I still don't have a libsmbclient.so file to link my
program to.  I have never come across this before, there has always been a
.so file created from any of the other shared libraries that I have
installed.  What could be the problem?

I am trying to write a program that uses some smbclient features but am
having trouble linking to libsmbclient.  I only have libsmbclient.a
installed on my machine (Redhat 9 Linux).  I believe that the smbclient
version on my updated system is 2.2.7a-security-rollup-fix.  All of the
other libraries that I normally link to are xxx.so and so either I need to
figure out how to link to an xxx.a library, or I need to find a version of
the smbclient that builds the libsmbclient.so.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
