I tried available Kerberos releases 1.1.1, 1.2.x, 1.3.x and my findings 
are as follows:
    - older versions than 1.2.8 issue a relocation error in the shared 
    - newer versions than 1.2.8 lead to a segmentation fault in the 
gsstest program.
Therefore I used 1.2.8.

I used Kermit 95 in order to do an ftp from a win2k client to the linux 
machine and telnet is also working, but only ftp is making use of the 
GSS-API. I think this is replacing the gss-server, gss-client test.
