I think you may be better off trying the modular clog:

Its kerberos5 module does not depend on any kerberos utilities,
neither on kerberos credentials cache, it is totally self-contained.
All it needs is kerberos libs to link against.

I did not try to compile it under Cygwin, but it might work "out of the box"
if you are lucky.

The patch applies after configure run on *nix, you may need some tweaks.
