Box doesn't use kerberos, so presumably the headers were being included
by openssl. It would be interesting to see the error you got so we could
find out which header was being included from where.

I'm guessing it was krb5.h, which is in /usr/include on fedora. It would
be interesting to know where that is in RHEL4, whether it follows the
previous RHEL3 or matches fedora.
