Description Dax Kelson 2004-09-07 19:16:39 EDT
Description of problem:

One of the new features of Mozilla 1.7 touted in the release notes is:

"Support for Kerberos HTTP authentication using GSSAPI (benefits
Unix-like platforms including Linux and OS X)."

To enable this you need to pass --with-gssapi to the configure script
during compile.

The current spec file doesn't have this.

Increasingly the single-sign-on benefits of Kerberos are driving
deployments. This feature of Mozilla coupled with mod_auth_kerb for
Apache make for a complete open source solution for secure
single-sign-on web applications.

Please consider making this simple change to the spec file. You
probably also want to add krb5-devel to the BuildReq line.
Comment 1 Christopher Aillon 2004-09-08 15:13:13 EDT
This is already enabled implicitly.  The --with-gssapi flag is only
required if you have it installed in a weird place.  Mozilla finds the
correct headers, and if you'll notice, we do build with it (the
negotiateauth extension)
