We're not interested in whether it's Heimdal or MIT, we're only interested
in whether that certain struct member is present and the set of libraries
needed to get at the functions we want.  The latter can be done with
AC_SEARCH_LIBS, and if you look into krb5 first you might get all those
other libraries for free depending on the platform.  Checking for struct
members can be done with a compilation test in the style of
config/c-library.m4.  (Basically, you just check if the code you want to
use compiles.  That's always a good start for a configure check, lacking
other ideas.)

I don't know if you want to sell this as a bug fix for 7.2.  If you are
then I can work out a "good" patch for this in the next two days for you
to test.
