You shouldn't change the configure file.  You should change configure.in and 
run autoconf to generate confiugre.

Shouldn't you have been able to use GSSAPI to rewrite the client and server

what sort of authentication mechanism was hiding behind the GSSAPI 
(Kerberos/GSI/whatever)?  Why didn't you?
