Getting a gss-api credential handle from a userid and password

I have a basic question that I hope someone can answer.  I'm curious to
know how an application would typically get a gss-api cred handle to use
with gss_init_sec_context() if the principal name and password are provided
as input (and assuming that the specified principal is different than the
one associated with the default login context).  I would assume that
krb5_get_in_tkt_with_password() would be used to obtain the krb5 cred
handle but how would that be translated into a gss_cred_it_t data type?

Thanks in advance,
