did you install the damned devel package on the operating system you 
didn't mention - on Redhat it would be "libsmbclient-devel"

with every day i get older i become more tired of people asking others 
to helpf where 1 minute of google would solve the issue and if not THAN 

Be precise and informative about your problem

     Describe the symptoms of your problem or bug carefully and clearly.

application, whatever). Provide your vendor's distribution and release 
level (e.g.: ?Fedora Core 7?, ?Slackware 9.1?, etc.).

     Describe the research you did to try and understand the problem 
before you asked the question.

     Describe the diagnostic steps you took to try and pin down the 
problem yourself before you asked the question.

software configuration.

     If at all possible, provide a way to reproduce the problem in a 
controlled environment.
