AFAICS there is no icon for gssapi. So your first statement is correct, but
the second one isn't.

That said, if we don't have animals building with gssapi, that's a problem
regardless of what we're doing here. What's the easiest way to make that

And can we get stats somehow of how many actually do build with gssapi even
though there is no icon for it? Andrew?
