Ah yes. I wasn't aware that they shared code, although I do know that
they operate on essentially the same principle.

But the "client side" of krb524d is built into the aklog that ships
with OpenAFS, while the "client side" of gssklog is not.  It's not
just the widespreadness, it's the fact that you can safely assume that
anybody who has installed a recent version of OpenAFS is guaranteed to
have the krb524d client.
