xorg/app/xhost: [PATCH] Remove support for old kerberos5 api.

I think it would be better to restore the definition of FamilyKrb5Principal
to libXau - while it may not be used by the current code, it is
defined/reserved for Kerberos5 and if a new implementation of that code
was done using current API's, we'd presumably want to use the same family
id for it.    That constant at least is part of the network protocol, not
the local implementation.

(Though should someone really want to do this, our security people have
 suggested a new GSS-API authentication method might be a better idea
 than a Kerberos5 specific one, but that's up to whoever is doing the work.)
