Description Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis 2018-03-05 05:32:58 UTC
Both "gssapi" and "kerberos" USE flags enable dependency on virtual/krb5, and both are Kerberos-related.
It does not seem to make sense to have these 2 separate USE flags.

I suggest to merge them into one USE flag named "kerberos" (which is global, and present in all Wine versions, not just >=3.1).

Then in `configure` arguments:
  $(use_with kerberos gssapi)
  $(use_with kerberos krb5)

I see an error-message pertaining to kerberos in wine-staging-7.12 with USE="kerberos -gssapi":

    078c:err:kerberos:kerberos_LsaApInitializePackage no Kerberos support, expect problems

The error disappears if built with USE="kerberos gssapi".

Unsure if this should be filed as a separate bug.

Comment 3 Nick Sarnie gentoo-dev 2022-07-28 19:09:20 UTC
I merged the flags and made it so USE="kerberos" passes --with-krb5 and --with-gssapi so that issue should be fixed
