Brilliant stuff!. Meanwhile, I’m glad to have touched base with an old friend (this is my Rach shoutout), and looking for another friend. Has anyone seen Brandy Westcott about? If so, say hi from me 🙂
In other news, the whole doc->pdf thing is not going as well as I’d like. I’m going to hack together a solution this week and post that.
Thanks, torkel, for your comment. You’re right about krb5-config that both mit- and heimdal provide. That binary (or script) just tells the CFLAGS and/or LDFLAGS that this specific krb5 was compiled with and needs to link to, etc, for programmes building against it. That make any sense? So anyway, as part of the kerberos-config script that I’ve referred to before (though I might have inadvertantly and VERY VERY wrongly called it krb5-config. Actually, I just checked and I didn’t, but I also wasn’t clear on the name of the kerberos switcher script. So it is officially going to be kerberos-config.
At this stage of the game, the way I envision (yes, I will test test test and have ebuilds available for you all to test) it is that mit and heimdal will both install renamed binaries (mit-krb5-config and so on) and then kerberos-config will install symlinks with the expected names for typical kerberos install to the specific implementation. If anyone has better ideas etc please do leave me a comment.
Yeah, ok, so if there is a top ten, I nominate this one to be in the top 5. It’s at least in the top 3 of the ones I’ve mentioned on these pages, doncha think?
