Building Kerberos for client-side

Hi All,

I built static libraries for MIT Kerberos and got following:
libkrb5.a, libgssapi_krb5.a
libkrb5_db2.a, libkdb5.a
libcom_err.a, libkrb5support.a
libverto.a, libgssrpc.a
libk5crypto.a, libkadm5clnt.a
libkadm5srv.a, libkadm5clnt_mit.a
I need to call only kinit, kdestroy and gss_init_sec_contextat client side.
That's it.
I checked using trial and error - and found that it worked with fewer
static libs (as in I didnt include libgssrpc and libkdb5 etc).
Please let me know which all .a would be required for above requirements ?
Also, is libgssapi_krb5.a dependent on libkrb5.a ?
