Really? I was under the impression that one would need to install the
Kerberos libraries from http://web.mit.edu/kerberos/
dist/, and then
have the GSSAPI library built for Windows. These all don't seem to be
available out of the box on MS-Windows. Am I missing something?
I think that making package.el be able to compile programs in
languages like C is an ambitious goal that is best left to end users
at this stage. For simple enough modules, the Makefile can be made
small and portable, so IMO it isn't worth the complexity to do more
than that, at least not yet.
