It tests for the GLOB_QUOTE flag but that is not present in glibc, so it
decides that glibc's glob() function is not good enough. See

Also, libroken.so contains only the symbol rk_glob(), not glob(). I
haven't checked the actual Debian package, but unless it overwrites
/usr/include/glob.h (which I highly doubt) Heimdal's version of glob()
will not be used outside of Heimdal.

I've just tried a Heimdal-0.7.1 build here and libroken does not have

Heimdal is using the AC_LIBOBJ machinery.

I did not see your mail on the heimdal-discuss list...
