Here is an update on the problem I described yesterday,
along with proposals for 'fixing' it.

Last night I examined the following three versions of INN
Case 1: The problem exists in both inn-2.4.2 and inn-STABLE-20050315
Case 2: The problem has been partially fixed in inn-CURRENT-20050315
(In fact the output of the --help option of configure
(is MUCH enhanced. Kudos and thanks! to who ever did that.

In the first case it would be nice if the problem could be addresses
by adding something like the following to the INSTALL document
If you plan on building INN with kerberos5 support you must
include the following in the arguments ./configure
--with-kerberos=PATH LDFLAGS=-LPATH/lib CCFLAGS=-IPATH/include
In both the first and second case it would be nice if documentation
on auth_krb5 could be added ... and perhaps even a simple shell script
If you plan on using auth_krb5 and your kerberos5 libraries are
in a non standard place that the linker/loader does not ordinarily search
then you should place the following shell script in bin/auth/passwd
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/full/path/to/kerberos5/lib_dir export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
Then you should mention this this script in readers.conf
on the auth: line rather than auth_krb5 directly.
The LD_LIBRARY_PATH above is specific to solaris ... your operating
system may be different. The key is to tell the system where to
find the kerberos5 libaries so that when it loads auth_krb5
it can find and load what it needs.
The reason you can not set LD_LIBRARY_PATH in the environment
before running rc.news to start innd is that the inn systems
clean their environments before proceeding, so that by the
time we have done inndstart -> innd -> nnrpd
the LD_LIBRARY_PATH has been removed from the environment
and so the launch of auth_krb5 fails
