No, because samba is not needed for compilation at all. If samba is not
installed, when you try to open the smb branch you get a message telling
you that smbclient is not found. You can then install samba and the smb
branch will work correctly without restarting xffm.
So by default USE_SMB_BRANCH is always defined. If you just do not want
to compile the samba module and completely obliterate the existance of
the samba branch, you undefine USE_SMB_BRANCH with --disable-smbbranch.
Maarten wants --disable-smbbranch to be the default for cygwin. I'm
afraid I don't know how to do this from configure.ac, but it should work
from the automake with -DUSE_SMB_BRANCH=0, probably using
#if defined(USE_SMB_BRANCH) && USE_SMB_BRANCH==0
