I believe that that refers to this patch:


As the aklog would not compile without a krb525, even if not used.

But this is only part of it. Solaris 10 has the Krb5 API,  but in
the gss libs. It does not include the header files either.

But since then it was reported that the OpenSolaris header files
chaged to match a newer version of the libs. But the Solaris 10
lib was not updated.

Sun has been promising  "Update 4" of Solaris 10 will have the header files
"Update 3" was the 11/6 So the next release should have it.
(aklog may then need to be recompiled to match the headers, and lib.
