Yes, exactly.  However I believe it would be wrong for us to accept a
patch that obtained the credentials cache API by looking up symbols in
a framework.  This adds too much OSX-specific goo to the core Kerberos
release.  That might be OK if KFM were going to use that goo, but it

I do think it would be reasonable to have a configure test that looked
for say -lkerberos_ccapi and if that library was found, linked against
that library and looked for the ccapi symbols there.
