9.1 CUPS backend missing

After a clean full install, then uninstalled LPRNG and CUPS, updated Samba to 3.0 and reinstalled CUPS. I found that I could not connect to a Windows network printer. as the SMB method was not available. I looked in the CUPS backend directory and found no smb*. I created a symlink to smbclient and printing is now OK. Which package is meant to install the method?
