Got it!  Here's the solution, for folks who might be looking for something 
like this from Google:

as root:

# ssh -f -N -L 9990:localhost:139 username@xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
username@xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx's password: 

Then, also as root:

# mount -t smbfs -o 
username=username,port=9990 //localhost/<share> /path/to/mountpoint

A few minor issues of file ownership remain, but I think I can work those out 
pretty easily.
