differentiating Heimdal and MIT libraries

Hi all,

For several unpleasant reasons that I'll avoid going into, I need to
determine whether a Linux application is linking against the Heimdal or MIT
kerberos libraries at runtime. I'd hoped that I could use
http://web.mit.edu/kerberos/krb5-devel/doc/appdev/h5l_mit_apidiff.html, and
in particular the different signature of krb5_cccol_last_change_time, but
it turns out that this isn't an exported symbol for libkrb5.so.

Does anybody have a good technique for doing this?

Thanks in advance,
