5.4 Release.  Using mount_smbfs to connect to a Windows file server.             
mount_smbfs(8) documentation refers to nsmb(8) in several places.

See the -M option of mount_smbfs(8).  nsmb(8) is also referred to in
the -O option.  Apparently, this document is supposed to refer to 
the theory of samba access rights and attributes of newly created

I sure would like to read this document.             
Read the mount_smbfs(8) man page.  Then seek the nsmb(8) man page.
I could not find it.             
Provide the man page.
