	qemu has a built-in interface to Samba to allow the guest OS to mount
	a file system using smb mounts.  The code uses an explicit path for
	smbd of /usr/sbin/smbd, but on NetBSD the samba package will put
	that file in /usr/pkg/sbin.
	Run qemu with "-smb /tmp" in the options.  Within the guest OS
	try to mount \\smbserver\qemu.  This will fail since qemu fails to
	start smbd.
	Fix the hard coded path in vl.c
