Samba3 and FreeBSD. Does it work?

Hello. I have spent the better part of last week trying to get Samba3
to work on my FreeBSD-server. Now I have 3.0.6 but the connectivity to
Suse-clients is not OK.
The setup is a FBSD server with nfs-mounted homedirectories. I want to
re-export these to Suse-clients via Samba and want to be able to use
hard and softlinks in from the client.
Between Suse-server and Suse-client I can do this and between
Suse-client and Solaris. But I find no way between BSD server and BSD
client nor between BSD server and Suse-client.
The FBSD way of mounting to samba seems to be the mount_smbfs command
and not samba's own smbmount. I get a "ln: Operation not supported" and
I hope this is ONLY due to the client?
Is there any way to force compilation of smbmount from ports? It is not
built per default and a "make bin/smbmount" errs with "no such file"
for mntent.h asm/types.h and linux/smb_fs.h. Which is a bit odd as I
imagined that the sources should be portable?
Is this - shudder - a lack in the server-samba-3.0.6 on this platform?
Any ideas om this? Or enlightenments...
