[Samba] smbmount failed

In fact I have fixed the problem now. I have compiled "smbmnt", but I have
not placed the samba files in the "install" directory that specificed at the
compile time, or placed in the "$PATH" (I have placed it in /tmp for
testing...). So the "smbmount" cannot find "smbmnt". It is fixed after I
modify the $PATH.

However, I have another question, "smbmnt" accesses a file "/etc/mtab",
which is sometimes read-only in an embedded system. I have modified the
codes so that it now access a dummy file in /tmp. "smbmnt" seems to be
working now but is there any potential problem?
