It's not a standards-track extension so it is not a high priority but
we'd consider a patch that implemented it. It's too late in the 1.3
release cycle for such a patch to make it into 1.3.

Yes. We received a contribution of rc4-hmac support. I integrated
this support into our code and wrote rc4-hmac GSSAPI support.
If you are within the US you can find this in our daily development
