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 compile 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 installation 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 installation. --libs [library] prints the compiler options needed to link against library. Allowed 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 | +------------+--------------------------+

EXAMPLES

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