I need to create a temporary ccache (with a unique name), and I'd like to
avoid direct manipulating with files in /tmp etc and I'd prefer to have the
krb5 library handled it itself. With Heimdal, I'm using the
krb5_cc_gen_new() call but it seems not to be supported in mit 1.2.x. That
was why I used krb5_fcc_generate_new(), which disepeared from mit 1.3. So
I'd like to know whether is there some portable way how to handle this
situation. Thanks,
