Yes and yes. The smb branch is a gmodule, so a configure option can be
set so it will not be compiled and no branch shown. If samba is not
installed, there is no problem either. Other programs xffm uses are
mount,umount (for fstab branch), cp, mv, tar, mkisofs. The only
indispensable ones are cp/mv. If these are not present in cygwin we can
always reuse the 4.0.x code which did not need cp/mv.
