how to add a SMB (samba) password for a user in Debian, when there is no smbpasswd binary?

how to add a SMB (samba) password for a user in Debian, when there is no smbpasswd binary?

I have samba installed on a Debian server of mine, and I use libpam-smbpass to keep UNIX and SMB passwords in sync. Passwords are only changed from unix logins via shell at the moment.

"Looks like it's in the samba-common-bin package: package page, filelist

Appears this was spun out of samba-common with version 2:3.4.0~pre2-1 of the samba source package (changelog):

samba (2:3.4.0~pre2-1) experimental; urgency=low

* Split binaries out of samba-common into samba-common-bin.
