Though I suppose I should note that IIRC, the output of cl.exe is
not binary compatible with cygwin binaries, in terms of compiling a
library with cl.exe and linking into a cygwin binary.  So if the
need is specifically to build updated cygwin binaries using newer
krb5 functionality, this is probably not the right path to go down.
