#132: auth_krb5:  use the modern function calls to get the Kerberos error

-------------------------+-------------------
 auth_krb5 needs to be ported to the modern function calls to get the
 Kerberos error instead of using com_err, which will eliminate the need for
 including com_err.h or et/com_err.h which are no longer part of the
 official Kerberos API.  This requires a replacement for
 krb5_{get,free}_error_message on older systems.  rra-c-util does this in
 portable/krb5.h and portable/krb5-extra.c (along with a ton of other
 Kerberos portability stuff).  It would be possible to add a subset of that
 logic, although it will require some surgery to fit into the INN
 compilation framework.

 INN's configure will then no longer have to clear KRB5_LIBS if neither
 et/com_err.h nor com_err.h could be found and --with-krb5 was not given.
