FreeBSD : cURL -- inappropriate GSSAPI delegation (9aecb94c-c1ad-11e3-a5ac-001b21614864)

Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

cURL reports :

When doing GSSAPI authentication, libcurl unconditionally performs
credential delegation. This hands the server a copy of the client's
security credentials, allowing the server to impersonate the client to
any other using the same GSSAPI mechanism.
