like i said previous better to have that feature. Removing that feature 
just because _you_ don't use and _you_ want to have minimal packages is 
not the way.

The only way is to get the build for those packages with ABS, remove 
smbclient from your system and recompile those packages. Is simple and 
is automatically thought makepkg.
