If -I/usr/include was necessary, then you would get many other error
messages than what you got.
Where, precisely, are the Kerberos includes on your system? I have an
OpenSolaris virtual machine, and I don't see those files anywhere. I only
see gssapi.h and gssapi_ext.h in /usr/include/gssapi, not gssapi_generic.h
Note that the GSSAPI support is for Kerberos 5. If you don't have
Kerberos 5 software installed then it is pointless to install the GSSAPI
support since it won't accomplish anything.

Right. I do not see the point of an "improvement" that causes me to spend
many hours/days/months of time just to get back to what is there already.

I think that you misunderstood me. If the autoconf is set up properly,
then it tells the IMAP stuff what to do. The fact that the IMAP stuff was
not told what to do correctly means that the autoconf was not set up

You're not doing anything to set the GSS paths if they are other than
where IMAP expects them to be.
Look at how the autoconf sets up the SSLDIR.
