If you're in a position to apply patches, then maybe you should simply
patch the call to gss_init_sec_context() to enable credentials delegation.
See RFC 2744 sections 4.1 and 5.19.

Since all you need to do is set the GSS_C_DELEG_FLAG bit in the req_flags
argument, I guess it should be possible even without recompilation, by
patching the executable file with a binary editor.
