#17196: Support Kerberos authentication against proxy server

Milestone:  2.12.1       |  Component:  unclassified
  Version:  2.10.7       |   Keywords:
 Our corporate proxy server supports Kerberos authentication using HTTP
 Negotiate authentication method. When I set this proxy address in global
 proxy server preferences, I receive following error (for example, from ICQ

 Error requesting https://api.login.icq.net/auth/clientLogin:
 Unable to connect to api.login.icq.net: SSL Connection Failed

 As far as I know pidgin and libpurple use libcurl library. I've checked
 that curl can download through proxy using Kerberos authentication:

 curl --proxy-negotiate -U : https://pidgin.im

 Please support Kerberos authentication against HTTP proxy server.
