smbmnt is a helper application used by the smbmount program to do the actual mounting of
SMB shares. smbmnt can be installed setuid root if you want normal users to be able to
mount their SMB shares.
A setuid smbmnt will only allow mounts on directories owned by the user, and that the user
has write permission on.
The smbmnt program is normally invoked by smbmount(8)

smbmount searches the normal PATH for smbmnt. You must ensure that the smbmnt version in
your path matches the smbmount used.
