Debian and Ubuntu have a need to have both development environments
installed at the same time though.
We need to be able to build things like sasl plugins and pam modules
against both.
(We support this, although we don't install krb5-config if both Heimdal
and MIT SDKs are installed)
Having a .pc that conflicted would be fine too, so long as there are
separate names as well.
