nmbd is part of the samba suite. However, in FreeBSD it lives in
/usr/local/sbin. The fact that something is trying to execute it says
that you've got some Linux shell script running without your
knowledge. Check to see if you machine has got any funny scripts in
/tmp or /var/tmp, indicating some incursion.
