firefox-extension uninstallable without krb4

Upstream bug:


firefox-extension depends on libkrb53, which no longer exists in krb4-less systems.

Is this just to make sure the library is installed for SPNEGO?

I don't know of any other reason why that dependency would be there, and this should probably not be a strict dependency in any case; if anything, a Recommends or Suggests would be more appropriate, but I wouldn't have a problem with simply removing the dependency. If the library isn't available, then any SPNEGO attempt should just fail uncatastrophically.

If that's all it's there for, and we still wanted the dependency, we could also do a libkrb53 | libkrb5-3 dependency.

As discussed on zephyr, you mean libgssapi-krb5-2 | libkrb53.
