I think LinNeighbourhood is what you want. You can browse your windows
network with it, and mount shares with a double click.
It's in the ports collection (ports/sysutils/linneighborhood)
You should also apply the following patch to the port:
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=ports/55179 (which fixes
the handling of file systems and mount points with white spaces).
(Save the base64-encoded attachment starting from
"Content-Type: application/x-tbz;" to a file and run uudeview
(ports/converters/uudeview) on it. After that, you have to extract the
.tar.bz2 archive and apply the patch:
patch < <patch to uncompressed patch file>
rm *.orig files/*.orig
