	If you are in a kerberos environment and enable
	"GSSAPIAuthentication yes" in /etc/ssh/ssh_config but for some
	reason that authentication fails when using ssh (eg no credential
	cache or tickets have expired) then ssh prints the bogus warning:
   /etc/ssh/ssh_config line 27: Unsupported option "GSSAPIAuthentication"
	before trying other configured authentication mechanisms.

	add "GSSAPIAuthentication yes" to /etc/ssh/ssh_config
	run "kdestroy" to remove any current tickets.
	ssh somehere and note the bogus warning message printed:

 city-art% kdestroy
 city-art% ssh circa
 /etc/ssh/ssh_config line 27: Unsupported option "GSSAPIAuthentication"
 /etc/ssh/ssh_config line 27: Unsupported option "GSSAPIAuthentication"
 Enter passphrase for key '/u/staff/mark/.ssh/id_rsa':

	Don't know.
