You've somehow got profiling turned on.  See gprof(1) for the full
details, but in short, what you are seeing is a record of what
functions are called in your application, how long is spent within each
function and the linkage between called and calling functions.  It is
of no conceivable use to you unless you are working on the development
of smbclient.

Profiling is turned on by adding -pg to the compiler flags when the
application is built. Check your /etc/make.conf for suspicious entries.
Eliminate wherever -pg comes from and rebuild smbclient to get rid of
the problem.
