when trying to use qemu's built in smb-functionality, qemu fails because it is looking for the smbd binary in /usr/sbin.

qemu-system-x86_64: -net user,smb=<path>: could not find '/usr/sbin/smbd', please install it

The configure script has a switch for this, so this should be easily fixed:

--smbd=SMBD use specified smbd [/usr/sbin/smbd]

I also noticed that samba is not part of qemu's optdepends, imho it would make sense to add it there.
This task depends upon
