libgss_krb5 is a bad name but it already allows loading mechglue
plugins, in fact I use this support to load a mechglue interposer plugin
for use with the GSS-Proxy project.

It is unfortunate that the library has 'krb5' in the name because it is
confusing, but I am not sure that renaming it would accomplish anything
useful, however I guess that a symlink could be provided  ?
