You probably do not have the Kerberos development package installed.
This would include the krb5.h file amongst other things.  I did not
see any mention of what operating system you're running, but e.g.
Debian and Ubuntu have a package called libkrb5-dev.  On an RPM-based
distribution it is probably something like krb5-devel.
