Looks like there is a configure option to disable kerberos 4, but no similar
option for kerberos 5 support.  We have a multi-workstation environment,
each workstation sharing some localy compiled packages over NFS, but also
having binary pre-packaged stuff.  So, it turns out that some of them
have kerberos 5.2, while the others --- kerberos 5.3.  So, `cvs' binary,
compiled on the first group of computers cannot be easily run on the
other, and vice versa.  

Since we are not really using kerberos, the best solution for us would
be to disable kerberos support in CVS altogether, for which no easy
way exists, because the configure script seems to pick up presence of
kerberos 5 automatically


Try compiling CVS without kerberos support on a system with kerberos 5
libraries and includes.


Provide --without-kerberos option, or at least --without-krb5.
