Add new option to allow better operation on multi-homed hosts

This fix takes advantage of recent movements in both Heimdal
and MIT Kerberos to support the use of GSS_C_NO_CREDENTIALS to
indicate that any credential in the default keytab may be used to
accept connections on a multi-homed host. 

The attached patch adds a new option, 'GSSAPIStrictAcceptorCheck', 
which defaults to 'yes'. If it is disabled, then GSS_C_NO_CREDENTIALS
is used instead of the default acceptor credential. This relies on the
system administrator only having trusted server keys in
- but if they haven't, they've lost anyway.

Note that this patch needs to be applied after the code tidy up patch
bug #1225
