I recently updated the build system to add $(KRB_LIBS) to
the link commands of applications using -lldap.  You might
grab the latest (via AnonCVS) and see if my changes had
any impact (positive or negative) upon building with Kerberos.

This forces all OpenLDAP applications to be linked with Kerberos.
A number of test applications do not link with -lldap and hence
don't need Kerberos' libraries.

Another issue with your suggestion is that you made it conditional
on the des_string_to_key() check.  I am not this will have the
desired result with all Kerberos implementions.

Hopefully someone will take the time to test the changes with
Kerberos before the next release.

I would also welcome patches to clean up UD's des_string_to_key()
