ISTM that autoconf should be capable of figuring out which version of
kerberos libraries we have --- that sort of discrepancy is exactly
what it's designed to handle.

According to whom?  I found 
http://archive.ncsa.uiuc.edu/General/CC/kerberos/krb5api/krb5api4.html
in which krb5_recvauth doesn't agree with our code.  (I miscounted
yesterday, there's only one more parameter described than we pass,
but it's definitely not the same.)
