krb5 installs a com_err header file and library. This is perfectly
justifiable (although I'd like a way to tell krb5 to use an installed
version and punt its own, for the Athena build). What's not justifiable
is com_err.h's dependency on symbols like HAVE_STDARG_H. I haven't run
into a problem with this yet, but it's clearly wrong.

com_err.h no longer contains autoconf symbols, and the trunk has support
for using the system com_err anyway.
