All mplayer packages in repos are lacking smb support since update to smbclient 4.
mplayer packages still depend on smbclient, but it is not used since mplayer configure cannot find version 4.

Attitional info:
Building from source results in:
./configure --...
Checking for Samba support (libsmbclient) ... no

Downgrading to smbclient 3.6.9 from rollback machine results in
Checking for Samba support (libsmbclient) ... yes
and compiled package plays smb:// streams.

Steps to reproduce:
Install mplayer.
Try playing smb:// stream.

This task depends upon

Is it easy to fix using ABS?

Mplayer2 works just by changing the samba includeline in stream/stream_smb.c to <samba-4.0/libsmbclient.h> and recompile.
The thing is that mplayer2 ./configure finds the libsmbclient, but has wrong includeline (not sure if it has been fixed, running my old package).
