Yes, and this will be available via the supported version in Solaris 10 Update 
4.  

However, that doesn't change that some people would like us to support GSSAPI, 
and there may be some benefit (additional applications, better network 
authentication, etc.) for doing so.  If we can get additional programmers to 
code the support (i.e. Sun, JPL) I don't see any reason not to support the 
*additional* authentication methods.
