In function arguments, yes.  I suppose we should never use char *.
The use of gss_buffer_t where const char * would do is one of those
things I thoroughly dislike about the GSS-API.  We've added
gss_const_buffer_t, but not a struct where the value pointer is a
const void *, right?

I'm not terribly happy with this API, but I think it will do.  I've
voiced before changes I'd like to see made before it's too late.
