If MIT Kerberos isn't available via the OS packaging system, you can
visit http://www.mit.edu/~kerberos/ and download sources from there.
One thing to be careful of: While we've tried to make our GSSAPI
headers compatible with C++ (e.g., 'extern "C"' around all the
function declarations), it is a C API. We intend to keep future
versions reasonably backwards-compatible in terms of the C API and
ABI, but that doesn't necessarily apply to C++ if you do something
"interesting". In practical terms, I suggest you avoid depending on
the specific type definitions used for GSSAPI types -- that is, avoid
depending on whether we use int vs long for a given 32-bit type if
both are 32 bits, don't use GSSAPI types in function signatures in
your ABI (because the name encoding would depend on the typedef),
stuff like that.

Sorry, I can't help you there...
