Description Mikhail T. 2013-05-12 19:12:38 UTC
FreeBSD (likely -- other BSD systems too) are "known" to Libreoffice to include Kerberos.

In reality, the component is optional and can be disabled, when rebuilding the OS from sources.

On such a system, Libreoffice will fail to configure (something about krb5_sendauth).

As a work-around, one can pass --without-krb5 flag to configure, but this should not be necessary. If Kerberos headers/libraries can not be found, configure should go on without Kerberos functionality instead of erroring out.
Operating System: BSD
Version: release

Bjoern/Michael: one for you? (even if I can't confirm it)
Comment 2 Julien Nabet 2014-05-28 16:24:05 UTC
Mikhail T: could you give a new try with more recent LO version?
For your information, 4.3 is now in alpha and master sources correspond to the future 4.4.0 LO version.
