That has exactly the same problem as currently only with the paths reversed.

If there is a platform that has the system headers in
/usr/include/gssapi/gssapi.h and the locally-built headers in, eg,
/usr/local/krb/include/gssapi.h then we're right back where we started.

Now, I don't know if such a platform exists, but if it does then chances
are it's working now and your proposed change will break it.

Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
