Thanks, I had just resorted to reading the configure file and found that the
default was not to create it.  So you confirm what I found.  I'm still not
able to link against it though.  I get an undefined reference to smbc_init
error, but at least I have the library.

Did you specify:
	configure --with-libsmbclient

Did you run:
	make libsmbclient
