FreeBSD 7.0-STABLE FreeBSD 7.0-STABLE #2: Sat Jul 12 18:30:17 SAMST 2008  i386
I do know nothing about what gss is just except it is used by mutt for imap.
Ok, i build mutt-devel for myself with several patches from
i have no heimdal port installed. So i noticed that:
- gssapi_generic.h was not found by imap/auth_gss.c
- gss_nt_service_name doesn't get redefined
ok by far the gssapi.h is installed by freebsd base system.
After googling i found that it is renamed to conform some RFC naming convention standard.
It is menyioned just here:
ok i just needed to comment out the gssapi_generic.h and redefine the symbol into capitalized standarded name
Apply as many patches on mutt-devel as I did, or:
- simply look at auth_gss.c
- find the ifdef HEIMDAL
See that without it the gssapi_generic.h is about to be included AND the symbol does not redefines.

just don't know who should fix this AND the base system header is involved. Have no much experience on C  too, sorry.
I did as described.
