That wouldn't tell you a whole lot about the existence of a function. You
do need to link to be able to verify that.

The attached patch should handle the different struct members (at least it
doesn't break them for me) and it doesn't gratuitously fail on libraries
that are not really needed. I haven't done anything about -lasn1 -lroken
-lcrypto because I'd need to know what functions you need from there. You
should be able to get it to work when you configure thus:
$ LIBS='-lasn1 -lroken -lcrypto' ./configure --with-krb5 ...other options...
If you can confirm that this patch works I can check it in so it appears
in whatever beta3+1 is going to be. However, be aware that we're
approaching the first release candidate, and since this issue doesn't
represent a regression from 7.1 it's not going to hold up the release.
