I know but at least for the client side it should call the same
internal acquire_cred_context() function with the same arguments.
gss_acquire_cred_from() is not as portable as gss_krb5_import_cred(),
and I'd like to avoid #ifdef usage if possible. That may change
if we try to use gss_acquire_cred_from() for the server sode later.

For now I simply would like to fix the bug.
