Kerberos + GSSAPI support in Tortoise SVN

Hi there.

I had the need for a version of TortoiseSVN with support for GSSAPI;
so I could use it with apache+mod_auth_kerb..

I read a few topics discussed here, in particular here:
http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/ds/viewMessage.do?dsForumId=4061&dsMessageId=2271337

Following this discussion; I could understand why GSSAPI support
wasn't included in TSVN.

However, after having a grab at it; I compiled TSVN with GSSAPI,
unlike previous solutions, it doesn't require any new files (other
than having the MIT kerberos SDK in the common directory) ; doesn't
require to patch neon nor sasl. In fact there's no need to add any new
files whatsoever to the TSVN source code. And best of all, the
resulting MSI is about the same size (GSSAP lib is only about an extra
20kB). All done through modifying the existing build file for nant.

I did so with 1.6.10.

Would you be interested in the patch?

Would be great if GSSAPI support was added by default in TortoiseSVN,
it takes forever to compile, would prefer not having to do so
myself...

Thank you
Jean-Yves
