ldd also shows no GSSAPI support for libserf.  I've tried building it
a couple of ways, but can't get output that appears to have the
support -- 1.3.3 with the patch from this ticket ( )
builds, but ldd doesn't show anything with 'gss' in the name; trying
1.3.8 with these directions: gives
permission errors if I use the GSSAPI=/usr option mentioned, as though
it expects the argument to be an executable:
root@revdb1:/tmp/serf-1.3.8# scons GSSAPI=/usr
scons: Reading SConscript files ...
/bin/sh: 1: /usr: Permission denied
OSError: '/usr --cflags gssapi' exited 126:
  File "/tmp/serf-1.3.8/SConstruct", line 360:
    env.ParseConfig('$GSSAPI --cflags gssapi')
  File "/usr/lib/scons/SCons/", line 1554:
    return function(self, self.backtick(command))
  File "/usr/lib/scons/SCons/", line 596:
    raise OSError("'%s' exited %d" % (command, status))
