KRB5-CONFIG(1)                   MIT Kerberos                   KRB5-CONFIG(1)

NAME
       krb5-config - tool for linking against MIT Kerberos libraries

SYNOPSIS
       krb5-config  [--help  |  --all  |  --version  |  --vendor  | --prefix |
       --exec-prefix | --defccname | --defktname | --defcktname |  --cflags  |
       --libs [libraries]]

DESCRIPTION
       krb5-config  tells the application programmer what flags to use to com-
       pile and link programs against the installed Kerberos libraries.

OPTIONS
       --help prints a usage message.  This is the default  behavior  when  no
              options are specified.

       --all  prints the version, vendor, prefix, and exec-prefix.

       --version
              prints the version number of the Kerberos installation.

       --vendor
              prints the name of the vendor of the Kerberos installation.

       --prefix
              prints the prefix for which the Kerberos installation was built.

       --exec-prefix
              prints the prefix for executables for which the Kerberos instal-
              lation was built.

       --defccname
              prints the built-in default credentials cache location.

       --defktname
              prints the built-in default keytab location.

       --defcktname
              prints the built-in default client (initiator) keytab location.

       --cflags
              prints the compilation flags used to build the Kerberos  instal-
              lation.

       --libs [library]
              prints  the  compiler  options  needed  to link against library.
              Allowed values for library are:

EXAMPLES
       krb5-config  is  particularly  useful  for compiling against a Kerberos
       installation that was installed in a non-standard location.  For  exam-
       ple,  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
