This came up ten years ago:

My answer then was that it had been that way for a long time, changing
it had the potential to break things, and that I hoped people would
migrate to pkg-config over time.

Since apparently not everyone has migrated to pkg-config over time, it
might be reasonable to remove LDFLAGS from the krb5-config --libs output.
