Re: Unable to build OpenLDAP with kerberos because of bug in configure script (ITS#3027)

The --kerberos flag never intended to be used in support of the
--with-cyrus-sasl flag.  When using Cyrus SASL, you need to either
use properly built shared libraries (and hence automatically load
necessary dependencies) or use LIBS to back fill as necessary.
