krb5-config − tool for linking against MIT Kerberos libraries
krb5−config [−−help | −−all | −−version | −−vendor | −−prefix | −−exec−prefix | −−defccname | −−defktname | −−defcktname | −−cflags | −−libs [libraries]]
krb5−config tells the application programmer what flags to use to compile and link programs against the installed Kerberos libraries.
prints a usage message. This is the default behavior when no options are specified.
prints the version, vendor, prefix, and exec−prefix.
prints the version number of the Kerberos installation.
prints the name of the vendor of the Kerberos installation.
prints the prefix for which the Kerberos installation was built.
prints the prefix for executables for which the Kerberos installation was built.
prints the built−in default credentials cache location.
prints the built−in default keytab location.
prints the built−in default client (initiator) keytab location.
prints the compilation flags used to build the Kerberos installation.
prints the compiler options needed to link against library. Allowed values for library are:
krb5−config is particularly useful for compiling against a Kerberos installation that was installed in a non−standard location. For example, a Kerberos installation that is installed in /opt/krb5/ but uses libraries in /usr/local/lib/ for text localization would produce the following output:
shell% krb5−config −−libs krb5 −L/opt/krb5/lib −Wl,−rpath −Wl,/opt/krb5/lib −L/usr/local/lib −lkrb5 −lk5crypto −lcom_err
