Squid attempts to learn how to play with gssapi using:

krb5-config --cflags gssapi
krb5-config --libs gssapi

The Illumos merger of MIT Kerberos 5, which is based off 1.6.3, doesn't understand this option and pukes. Stopgap option is to code in requirements for this specific functionality specifically, but it may be simpler just to merge in MIT Kerberos 1.9.1 code with some robust review.
