Unfortunately no one tried that version with SSPI. So I don't know
if it doesn't break SSPI. The definitions in protocols array in neon
is same for GSSAPI and SSPI (exclude function pointers) ...

I have found the smallest set of MIT krb DLLs. But it is useless until
someone test TSVN with GSSAPI support againist SSPI auth.
(comerr32.dll, gssapi32.dll, k5sprt32.dll, krb5_32.dll)

I'm unable to patch and compile all TSVN versions with GSSAPI enabled :o(

I'm looking on neon and dynamic GSSAPI loading. But I'm limited with
free time right now. The next step will be to implement GSSAPI into TSVN.
