Actually, depending on what exactly gets linked with libsmbclient (which in 
turn depends on your definition of "linking", is the external kio_smb process 
the only thing considered "linked" with libsmbclient? ldd seems to think so 
(the kio_*.so libs are actually started up as separate processes by kdeinit, 
and only kio_smb.so shows up as linked to libsmbclient), but is ldd the correct 
definition of "linking" here?), some other KDE contributors may have to 
relicense their code too. But what's sure is that without Trolltech, KDE can't 
do anything.
