Note that linking this way is unsupported as there are a bunch of
private interfaces (functions) that could be changed without violating
the advertised stability level.  At this point Solaris offers libgss
(Interface Stability == Committed), libsasl (Interface Stability ==
Committed) and libkrb5 (Interface Stability == Volatile) as supported
APIs to access krb security.  Doing anything else is not supported and
has a greater risk of breaking with updates and new releases.  See the
Interface Stability section of the attributes.5 man page for more
information on this topic.
