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

       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 com-
       pile and link programs against the installed Kerberos libraries.

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

       --all  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 instal-
              lation 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  instal-

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

                         |krb5        | Kerberos  5   applications |
                         |            | (default)                  |
                         |gssapi      | GSSAPI  applications  with |
                         |            | Kerberos 5 bindings        |
                         |kadm-client | Kadmin client              |
                         |kadm-server | Kadmin server              |

                         |kdb         | Applications  that  access |
                         |            | the Kerberos database      |

       krb5-config is particularly useful for compiling against a Kerberos in-
       stallation that was installed in a non-standard location.  For example,
       a  Kerberos  installation  that is installed in /opt/krb5/ but uses li-
       braries in /usr/local/lib/ for text localization would produce the fol-
       lowing output:

          shell% krb5-config --libs krb5
          -L/opt/krb5/lib -Wl,-rpath -Wl,/opt/krb5/lib -L/usr/local/lib -lkrb5 -lk5crypto -lcom_err
