I don't know what smb4k is. :) There is no such package in Slackware. As I use both KDE3 and Trinity in Slackware 13.1, which does not support either in any way, and I have the Samba related options available in both KControls, I am left to believe the Samba KCOntrol options are part of KDE3/Trinity.

Possibly those who are not seeing those options in KDE3/Trinity KControl don't have some respective build options enabled? The tdebase build options includes an explicit -DWITH_SAMBA option, which defaults to OFF. I don't know how that build option affects KControl.
