pyneighborhood error

As is common with me, I hosed my system again. Not a big deal as I expect this happen as I learn.
I reinstalled the OS (Slackware 13.37_64) installed gksu and all it's deps, then installed pyneighborhood.
As root everything works as it should, as a user I get an error when I try to mount a share.

Failed to run /sbin/mount.cifs '//' '/home/chuck/CHCOMP/CLOUD/Music' '-o' 'credentials=/home/chuck/.pyNeighborhood/smbcredsY06Xoe' as user root.

The gksu-run-helper command was not found or is not executable.
This didn't happen the prior installation. I'm not sure where to look to fix this.

mkdir /usr/lib/libgksu
ln -s /usr/lib64/libgksu/gksu-run-helper /usr/lib/libgksu/gksu-run-helper
Works like a charm.
And it did work like a charm...
