If the point is to find the correct name for the libraries to use for
Kerberos, I would suggest using the krb5-config script as a better
option still:

% /var/raeburn/krb5-cleanup/Install/bin/krb5-config --libs krb5
-L/var/raeburn/krb5-cleanup/Install/lib -lkrb5 -lk5crypto -lcom_err

% /afs/athena.mit.edu/astaff/project/krb5/bin/krb5-config --libs krb5 
-L/afs/athena.mit.edu/astaff/project/krb5/arch/i386_linux24/lib -Wl,-rpath -Wl,/afs/athena.mit.edu/astaff/project/krb5/arch/i386_linux24/lib -lkrb5 -lk5crypto -lcom_err
