What do you mean by "indirect"?  The KFW DLLs are linked to MSVCRT.DLL.

More than likely the answer is 'yes'.  You can't mix C runtime
environments.  You would need to compile KRB5 and GSSAPI with Cygwin.

It means giving up on Leash because when you build with Cygwin you
probably will not have support for the Credential Cache API.

SSH support including GSSAPI and linkage to MIT Kerberos is now in my
K95 test builds.
