Oh, that's fine.. I have no objection to options to fix the build for
"weird" configurations, but IMHO "normal" configurations should work
"out of the box".

I would /almost/ argue that configure should always look for krb5-config
and build aklog if it is found, and provide --disable-krb5 and
--disable-krb5-conf to turn those off..  (or perhaps --with-krb5-conf=no)
