I was thinking we might want to use different names so you can have both
installed.  Unfortunately, I guess that makes the autoconf a bit messy
because the default pkg-config macro doesn't support alternatives.

I guess we want a generic name and an implementation name.  I think you
do want things like Debian's krb5-multidev/heimdal-multidev to work in
this model.
