Hi Eric,

Thanks for posting the information. It may also be worth checking out
(with configure --help or looking in the file) whether there is a
--without-krb5 or similar.

Thanks for the tip Stuart.

If I'm reading the file right, the krb5-config check isn't
conditional on anything.

It also appears that this has been around for a while:

pkgconfig, where these problems have already been solved, but barring that,

Sorry about that. I forgot to re-attach a cleaner patch.

The spec file will also need an update to add the flag:

-./configure --prefix=%{_prefix} --host=$CFGHOST --build=%{_build}
--disable-openssl --disable-gtk-doc
+./configure --prefix=%{_prefix} --host=$CFGHOST --build=%{_build}
--disable-openssl --disable-gtk-doc --disable-kerberos

Hello all,

I recently had trouble building gnome-vfs from a Freescale release
of LTIB and thought I'd share my work-around.

The problem appeared as a link failure in gnome-vfs-2.24.1/modules/
with an error that "-Bsymbolic" isn't a supported link option by the

What I found by looking at the configure logs was that the link
flags were being leaked from the build machine into the

AC_PATH_PROG([KRB5_CONFIG], krb5-config, none, $PATH:/usr/kerberos/bin)
if test "x$KRB5_CONFIG" != "xnone"; then

GSSAPI_CFLAGS="`${KRB5_CONFIG} --cflags gssapi`"

In English, these lines will use the krb5-config to determine the
and linker flags needed to support the kerberos authentication libraries
in a manner similar to pkg-config.

I suspect that a patch doctoring the PATH could prevent leakage from,
I don't need kerberos on my machine, so I solved the issue in an easier

I hope this helps someone else.
