+1 for renaming --- anybody who's building with "krb5" and expecting to,
you know, actually *get* krb5 would probably rather find out about this
change at build time instead of down the road a ways.

A compromise position would be to introduce a gss parameter while leaving
krb5 in place as a deprecated (perhaps undocumented?) synonym for it.
But I think that's basically confusing.
