There are some older unixes that had their own Kerberos libraries,
that's what I was specifically referring to.  I agree that there's
really only 2 implementations among the major free/open source
distributions and that those have supported GSSAPI for a long time.

The only question there is if we're even building w/ krb5 and/or
gssapi support on the buildfarm by default today..?
