I think you don't need libsmbclient, at all. Like you noted, only
gnomevfs depends on it: no Samba binary uses it. So, no need for even a
private one; libnetapi appears to be the same case.
I see the Debian packages for v4 also have a libsmbclientraw, but that's
apparently a different lib, since their libsmbclient (without raw) do
switch from 3.6 to 4.0 in experimental. Do you see that one too?

Can you list them? I'm a bit surprised that this libsmbclient would have
more dependencies, since it's supposed to be the same.
