I don't think checking for /usr/bin/krb5-config is the right way to 
determine whether MIT Kerberos 5 is part of the base system or not. 
Future versions of NetBSD will also have Heimdal which also installs 
/usr/bin/krb5-config, so we wouldn't be able to distinguish between the 
two.  Is there some header and regular expression match that we can 
check instead?  For example, heimdal/ checks for 
"heimdal_version" in /usr/include/krb5/krb5.h to determine whether 
Heimdal is indeed part of the base system.
