RE: GSSAPI authentication

Derek, I am running K5 release 1.1 from MIT. I found gssapi.h and have tried
to compile using your current version of CVS (1.11). I want to get this to
work before moving on to your new release. :) I get a series of errors while

Undefined symbol '_valid_enctype' referenced from text segment

I get the same for _krb5_c_decrypt, krb5_c_encrypt_length, krb5_c_encrypt,
_valid_entype, _krb5_random_seed, blah blah blah...

gssapi.h is located in /usr/local/lib/gssapi

I ran ./configure --with-gssapi=/usr/local and configure does find gssapi.h.

The libraries are located in /usr/local/lib

Any ideas?

I think that is the basic idea, but the necessary headers and libraries seem
install with Kerberos 5 distributions on other systems.

Who is vendor of your K5?  I don't recognize the 5.1 version number.

Um, here's two tests...  I'm using a broad find command to implement them,
once you find gssapi.h (should be */include/gssapi.h or
*/include/gssapi/gssapi.h), the lib dir should be parallel to the include
e.g. finding /usr/kerberos/include/gssapi/gssapi.h means that the necessary
libraries should be installed in /usr/kerberos/lib.

     find / -name gssapi.h -print 2>/dev/null

That should find the header for you and print the path.  Once you have that,
determine <libdir> as above and run the following:

     nm -A <libdir>/*.a |grep gss_import_name

and send me the output (I really only need the name of the library you found
the gss_import_name function in, but nm output can be hard to decipher - the
function definition will probably have a type code of 'T', but you'll have
man your nm to be sure).  I'll send you a tar ball or a patch against the
current dev version of the source and you can attempt to compile.  Please
me know your 2.5MB tar ball/smaller patch preference.
