akregator and krb5

On my build system I built kdepim while krb5 was installed. I installed the final packages on a different system.

Now Akregator refuses to fetch feeds unless krb5 is installed.

I understand the cause and effect, but seems to me this might be a bug. Even when built with krb5 present, apps should still run when krb5 is not installed or found. The app loses some authentication security, but that would be the same result as when kdepim is compiled without krb5 present during the build.

Can others confirm this behavior? If so then I'll file a bug.
