Description Pacho Ramos 2013-07-26 05:17:50 UTC
As reported downstream:

It fails to build because:
- krb5.h is not under a subdir in heimdal
- krb5_get_init_creds_opt_set_out_ccache cannot be used with heimdal

This looks similar to:

And also PLD linux is using a patch to checking for krb5_get_init_creds_opt_set_out_ccache;a=blob;f=krb5.patch;h=c29dcebc40b181562017f49b76e6d32a2f6e29af;hb=HEAD

Stef, Ondrej, could you please review and apply this?
Comment 3 Stef Walter 2015-08-17 19:36:32 UTC
This just conditionally comments out code. The feature would break due to the missing function call.

I'm not a big fan of having slightly different multiple dependencies ... optionally compiled against ... doing slightly different things. Doing something like that requires serious and long term investment from the interested party. 

Just #ifdefing away code that doesn't compile is a bad start.

At a very minumum this needs work. Up to Bastien to reject if he doesn't want to have combinatorial explosion in g-c-c deps.
