smb4k is a common GUI samba application for KDE, for what it's worth.

It's also possible that the samba panel is installed by kde-network or some other subpackage that
I don't have installed, which would make it part of stock KDE 3.5.10 but not of stock kcontrol.

Unlikely, as the configure options passed are also quite visible and there's no switch available for
enabling samba support.

However, if this turns out to be important, the answer can undoubtedly be obtained by examining
the source of KDE 3.5.10, making it a silly thing to argue about. :)
