Kerberos support was added in Redhat 6.2.
However, I'd estimate that 99% of Redhat users are NOT really interested in
Kerberos stuff. Installing pine requires you install krb5-config and
krb5-libs too. I'd like to keep krb5* out of my systems.
Isn't there a neater way of integrating Kerberos with pine, e.g. via
releasing pine-x.y.rpm and pine-krb5-x.y.rpm ?
What would be more useful than Kerberos, would IMO be SSL patches for
secure IMAP connections.
The need for krb5-config is gone in Raw Hide.
are you sure? this pine-4.32-1 package was just taken from Raw Hide. look:
# rpm -i --test pine-4.32-1.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
libk5crypto.so.3 is needed by pine-4.32-1
libkrb5.so.3 is needed by pine-4.32-1
krb5-config, not krb5-libs :-)
There are (or at least were; I think someone removed them) hooks in pine to rebuild the package
without krb5 etc. using a simple --define or changing the .spec file, though.
