Great  Glad I asked.

That sounds great.  But AFAIK that only lets you use a V5 KDC to get a
V4-compat ticket.  I'm asking about using a NetBSD client to get a TGT
from a V4 (AFS V4) KDC. For that, AFAIK, you need a V4 client suite.
Is that right?

Personally, I don't give a toss about running a V4 admin server; I
just need to get a TGT from someone else's V4 KDC.  Changing passwords
via their V4 admin server would be nice, though.

(If it matters, my group has its own V5 realm I'd like to use.  I just
need to do a V4 kinit as another principal in the AFS-V4 realm, as well.)
