The Heimdal people are using "private" as a structure member name, so I know it's a Heimdal problem :-).

Should we make this only for --enable-developer, given we don't control
what may be in system headers?

In terms of 'user experience', the administrator shouldn't see either
the MIT or Heimdal administration tools, and we are a fair way off from
even relying on system libs (so installing the right thing won't be a
concern).  As such, you won't see very much of either, except if you
start looking carefully at the code.
