Yes, both ship krb5-config. Hence I posted this:

$ /data/pkg/bin/krb5-config --version
heimdal 1.5.3
$ /usr/bin/krb5-config --version
Kerberos 5 release 1.17

So one could try to tell them apart by the output. But then, I'll let
this lay here for someone in the future … who has more
interest+experience in dealing with Kerberos …

… and will just apply the part about krb5/krb5.h on Linux, which works
on anything since 2015 at least.
