XSSO? How to communicate to XSSO/PAM external authentication info?



So, I've been looking at XSSO [*], the X/Open PAM-based single sign-on
spec. I like their pretty SSO pictures, and particularly the one where
an application uses GSS-API to authenticate to a remote service which
then uses XSSO to validate the client.

I'm looking for how such a service would use XXSO (PAM) in that case. It
doesn't seem like there is an API for informing XSSO of the GSS-API
authentication information (mechanism(s), client principal(s)) so XSSO
can correctly authenticate and authorize the client.

Can someone enlighten me as to the above?
