Yeah, that's probably also a good option.  I've started providing
pkg-config files for my library packages, and it seems to work reasonably
well.  And pkg-config has fairly good support for multiple "profiles"
similar to what's currently implemented in krb5-config by just installing
multiple pkg-config files.

If you do adopt pkg-config, it would be good to reach some consensus with
Heimdal on what to call the profiles so that the same pkg-config
invocation can work with either Kerberos implementation.
