Hi Markus.  Thanks for your interest.  The problem is that postgresql
assumes the GSS-API header file is called 'gssapi.h', but in GNU GSS it
is called 'gss.h' (should be available in /usr/include/gss.h for you).
If you modify PostgreSQL to include gss.h instead of gssapi.h, hopefully
things will work.

I don't recall anywhere in the standard that _requires_ that the header
file is called 'gssapi.h', but I see how it could simplify building
packages that makes this assumption (many do).

What GNU GSS could do here is to install a file
$prefix/include/gss/compat/gssapi.h which only does '#includes <gss.h>',
and also make 'pkg-config --cflags gss' include a
-I$prefix/include/gss/compat directory in its output.
