      Description

      I have Apache httpd 2.2.27 + mod_auth_kerb-5.4 on a RHEL 6 host and
      subversion 1.8.15 + serf-1.3.8 built on a Solaris 9/10 host. I would
      like to use subversion on the Solaris hosts to authenticate against
      the Kerberos server on the RHEL 6 host. I built serf to link against
      GSSAPI on Solaris (so -DSERF_HAVE_GSSAPI was defined when building
      serf and serf is linked against -ssl). Subversion appears to be
      hanging:
      $ svn info http://shu.il.thewrittenword.com
      [hang]

      On the server, access_log shows the following ad infinitum:
      10.191.57.54 - - [31/Dec/2015:08:50:11 +0000] "OPTIONS / HTTP/1.1" 401 -
      10.191.57.54 - - [31/Dec/2015:08:50:11 +0000] "OPTIONS / HTTP/1.1" 401 -
      10.191.57.54 - - [31/Dec/2015:08:50:11 +0000] "OPTIONS / HTTP/1.1" 401 -
      10.191.57.54 - - [31/Dec/2015:08:50:11 +0000] "OPTIONS / HTTP/1.1" 401 -
      ...

      I also built subversion 1.8.15 on a Solaris 11 host and it behaves
      correctly. serf was built the same way on this platform. So, maybe
      some hiccup with serf+GSSAPI on Solaris 9/10?

      With verbose logging enabled in serf-1.3.8 (CONN_VERBOSE=1
      AUTH_VERBOSE=1 in serf_private.h), I see the following:

      Older versions of subversion built against neon with GSSAPI support on
      Solaris 9/10 worked fine. I am only seeing a problem now where serf
      has replaced neon in the build.

      gss_init_sec_context() on Solaris 11 and RHEL 6 returns 1 whereas on
      Solaris 9/10 it returns 0. However, gss_init_sec_context() in
      subversion+neon on Solaris 10 returns 1. No idea why the behavior is
      different but I think this is the cause.
