OK, but that just proves you have enough of it installed to be able to
*use* it.  Not necessarily enough to be able to compile something that
needs it.  For that you need the header files and development

What does "which kinit" give you?

libkrb5.so would be used at runtime.  For compiling you would need
something like libkrb5.a, but since you have the header file (krb5.h)
you should have the development library too.

It looks like you do.  It's also possible that Solaris does not split
them up like most Linux distributions do.

It looks like you've compiled it yourself.  I would have thought Solaris
9 would come with a version you could just install, but perhaps it's too
old.  I don't know.  It also looks like you might have several copies of
it installed in at least /opt/dcelocal/krb5, /prod/opt/dcelocal/krb5 and

The files in /home1/admin/... are probably not installed there, but
that's just where Kerberos (at least one instance of it) was compiled.
So that's probably not where you want configure to look.

Do you have krb5.h and something like libkrb5.a anywhere else?
