That's because you are not meant to hand-build it.  Your system GSSAPI
library should do it.  The fact that we did it in Samba3 is not a good
example.  Samba4 has taken the route of using real GSSAPI for this

I realise this change is not what you were hoping to do, but I just want
it noted that doing this by hand is always going to cause problems.
