I've really tried to get kerberos to build from the sources. Sure, I got
it to compile now, but not without having to modify/fix more than 10
files. The NAnt build script is therefore huge.

But even though I can build it, having to modify so many files is way
too much for me to be comfortable with the build (and the stability on
Windows for that matter).
Also, it's not just one dll that get built but several, and all are
required for this to work (btw: since I don't have a server to test
this, I have no idea if my build even works). All those dlls would add
almost 5MB to the TSVN installer. For a feature that's not used by many
people, I think that's too much.

So, I'm now against including kerberos with TSVN, sorry.
