Your bind9-utils package (providing nsupdate) was not built with gssapi
support (which would then give you a -g flag).  

Having removed our dependency on bind9 as a server, we do hope to remove
our dependency on the client as well (for this and other reasons), but
I'm not sure if this will change for the 4.0 release.
