I think Jonathan's suggestion was to get rid of the variable altogether
and simply make the code conditional on whether the server is offering
GSS-Negotiate.  I plan to make the use of 100-continue conditional on
large_request as well, so that it only covers the case where it would
otherwise fail.  People who have broken proxies or broken servers and
are using GSS-Negotiate (which, as I said, is probably very few people,
if any) will simply have to increase the postbuffer size as before.
