This is a problem with the configure logic dealing with kerberos.  I think I
know how to fix it, but could you post the config.log from the failed build?
(compression is fine with me) If you no longer have it, do you recall how you

don't suppose you might apply the patches I have submitted to that end or tell
me why they are inappropriate:
