Kerberos IV has (AFAIK) always come with "ksu", which does what you
want.  Adding this support to the NetBSD su should be fairly
straightforward; when the Kerberos 5 support comes in, it will
probably be done then.  And to answer your next question ... I don't
know when that will happen, but it's in the works :-)
