Yeah, but figuring out what changes we need is part of the problem -- I'm
guessing there's some reason why we didn't go that route in the first
place and that it won't just work without some changes, and I have no
NFSv4 environment in which to test.

I'd be happy to help as much as I can from the Kerberos side, but
unfortunately I can't do much beyond expressing a hopeful opinion.  :/

BTW, I'm guessing that you actually want libgssapi2 to depend on some
GSSAPI implementation; right now, it's possible to install it with no
underlying implementation, which generally isn't what you want.
nfs-common happens to depend on MIT Kerberos as well so I'm guessing
that's pulling in the GSSAPI implementation in the common case.
