I agree with all that. However, nfs-utils has been developed with
the UMich gssapi iplementation. I don't know why they decided no to
use the MIT library.

Is it worth it to try to get both upstream authors to unify the
libraries? Maybe Brian and me could try that.

Why the MIT folks renamed their library? I doubt it was because the UMich
folks used the same library name.
