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:

┌────────────┬────────────────────────────┐
│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 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
