[cups] Problem when installing with --disable-gssapi

When building and installing cups-2.2.2 with --disable-gssapi the 
installed cupsd.conf file still includes the <Policy kerberos> ... 
</Policy> section.  If you try to start cupsd with this default 
configuration, cups complains about the config file and refuses to 
start.  Manually removing the kerberos policy permits a successful 
start-up.  (It seems to me that the installed cupds.conf file should 
"just work out of the box, without requiring manual modification.)

NetBSD -current on amd64, installing via the NetBSD pkgsrc system.

The NetBSD folks requests that I "file a bug report upstream".  So...

I tried to file a bug on this via the "Bugs" link, but github gave me 
the most unhelpful error message "Something went wrong" when trying to 
create an account!  I have no idea what went wrong or how to fix it. 
Hence this E-mail to the list.
