Ok, I probably didn't say it right in the first place, but this is the
command that works on FreeBSD but doesn't on NetBSD:

mount_smbfs -I x.x.x.x //guest@samba/share /mount_point

So I suppose it is using a guest account.

This patch seems to deal with anonymous mounts? I don't need to do
that. Will this fix what I'm trying to do? Also, I'm on 4.0_RC3, but I
haven't checked yet to see if this patch will work.
