Well, the question is if we want to require GnuTLS 3.2 or not.

Can you test if only the changes to the torture test work on your machine?

The option I see is that we are looking for GnuTLS 3.4.7, if present we build 


if not and we do a heimdal build, we build the old code which we rename to:


We might need to require MIT Kerberos 1.13 for an AD DC build, because earlier 
versions have race conditions in the replay cache or do not support features 
we need, like GSS_KRB5_CRED_NO_CI_FLAGS_X for SPNEGO which is required for 
working TLS support. I'm also currently working on support for 

Things we need to discuss ...
