I think this sounds promising!  It makes sense.  Thanks for pointing us
in this direction.

I should already be out at a customer site but I hope to do some poking
in krb5-config early next week to see if that might be the key to
resolving the (non-spnego) kerberos problems I've been having with 8.0.
In my case, I'll be seeing what joy I get by adding -lgssapi_krb5.
