This has been tested against 7.0-RELEASE, 7-STABLE, and -CURRENT as of
mount_smbfs(8) does not currently support connections over IPv6. A quick
look at the source shows instances of gethostbyname(), and it likely also
does not support connecting to port 445 without netbios (as required for
cifs/smb over IPv6)
This bug is more important (IMHO) now as Samba has gone mainstream with
IPv6 support with the 3.2 release.
How-To-Repeat: Attempt to mount any IPv6 accessible share with mount_smbfs (requires
either Samba 3.2 IPv6 enabled server, or a Windows Server 2003/2008 IPv6
