  The correction should be simple. The checking is under code
not protected by #ifdef K5AUTH

  Given that the kerberos5 support was removed from the X Server,
and the existing code appears to not have been compiled for several
years, and uses the old api, probably it should be better to also
just remove it from xhost. But the proper correction really would
be to update to current kerberos api...

  Anyway, my freedesktop account appears to not be functional,
so I will not be able to correct it now. Hopefully by tomorrow,
or later tonight it is corrected...
