smbfs, 2.1.55 and smbmount

Bill Hawes has very kindly posted the patches to make smbfs work,
but I still have a problem with smbmount. To make existing versions
(well, the ones I can find, anyway) of smbmount compile, I have to
revert to an earlier version of smb_mount.h in which the
smb_mount_data structure has many more members than it containes in

Then, smbmount works, but the kernel reports (during an 'ls' or
other similar operation) that no server has been passed, or that a
bad server has been passed.

Any ideas? Should I be using a different version of smbmount from
the one in smbfs-2.0.2?

smbclient works perfectly, by the way.
