If you use add_to_error_table()/error_message(), once for the program is

But I really most say you should use what I proposed since that will give
you error-messages that useful. Like krb5_kt_get_entry will return error

"failed to find host/datan.it.su.se at SU.SE(1) in keytab /etc/krb5.keytab"

instead of just KRB5_KT_NOTFOUND.
