Yes, which seems similar to what is in MIT Kerberos. Right now I've
got it building with the Heimdal gssapi.h.

Hmm, I think it's only the Sun BSD license?

I mentioned it only because it includes a more recent mechglue
implementation, not because of gssrpc. But now that you ask, Solaris
uses it for kadmin (as does MIT now I believe). And so does NFSv4.
