Description John Morris 2003-01-18 17:49:35 EST
As shipped by RedHat, v. 1.2.5-6, the option to enable dns resolution of kdc and
realm are not compiled in, despite that the argument '--enable-dns' is supplied
to the configure script.

This is probably a Kerberos bug, but it may be worked around by omitting the
option '--with-netlib'; specifying '--with-netlib=...' causes the code in the
'configure' script that turns on the '-DKRB5_DNS_LOOKUP_KDC=1
-DKRB5_DNS_LOOKUP_REALM=1 -DKRB5_DNS_LOOKUP=1' compile flags (starting around
line 1400) to be circumvented.

The quick fix is simply to omit the line reading '--with-netlib=-lresolv \' in
the krb5.spec file; at configure time, the script will find the resolv library
by itself, and turn on DNS lookup support at the same time.

If further information is needed, please ask, and I will supply it.

This has been a problem with RH 8, yet it is a simple fix, and is
still present in RHEL 3?  What's the deal ?
