cyrus-sasl-gssapi is missing support for GSS-SPNEGO, which is required for interaction with some windows domains using e.g. adcli.

This is caused by an autoconf failure. The configuration in the package is incompatible with autoconf 2.70 and that results in messages like

> checking for SPNEGO support in GSSAPI libraries... ./configure: line 18853: ac_fn_c_try_run: command not found
> no

It seems to be a coincidence that the rest of the build succeeded with those errors present.

The bug is fixed with this upstream pull request (not merged yet)

I can confirm that the patches allow building cyrus-sasl-gssapi with apparent GSS-SPNEGO support (only verified with pluginviewer)

Additional info:
* package cyrus-sasl-gssapi - 2.1.27-4
* discovered in

Steps to reproduce:
Install cyrus-sasl and cyrus-sasl-gssapi, then run

pluginviewer -c -m GSS-SPNEGO
