Second paragraph of Section 28.10 of FreeBSD Handbook:

On FreeBSD, the Samba client libraries can be installed using the net/samba-smbclient port or package. The client provides the ability for a FreeBSD system to access SMB/CIFS shares in a Microsoft® Windows® network.

The net/samba-smbclient port or package does not exist in 11.1-STABLE r331749 amd64.

A `pkg install samba-smbclient` also fails with an unknown package.
