BTW, there _is_ a reason for this.  It turns out the GSSRPC that
comes with Kerberos 5 is essentially only useful for talking to
the Kerberos 5 admin server (it doesn't follow the GSSRPC spec, so
it's not useful for, say, GSSRPC authenticated NFS).  This is a
pisser, but I don't think it's something that should hold up Kerberos
5 integration (I just got an underling here at NRL to work on
various Kerberos things, and I think I'll give him this as a task
to do down the road when he's up to speed).
