Good morning,

I am seeing a failure when building libtirpc-0.2.1-1 with a cygport
compile.  The compile is failing during the configure step.

A post on cygwin-announce indicates that the Cygwin port of libtirpc
is supposed to exclude the GSS-API, but the error I'm getting
indicates that it's trying to find a GSS lib.  Here is the cygport

I do not see any place where --enable-gss is being passed to
./configure, so I expect that the check for this library would be

Has anyone seen this problem?  Any advice on getting a clean build is
