Precisely.  I take it that there has been no progress on the matter
in the last two years?

Being a stubborn fellow, I'll probably try commenting out all references
to pam_ksu and pam_krb5 in /etc/pam.d/* and see whether that improves
matters.  If it does, perhaps an ed script to do the same could be run
as part of the build process when Kerberos is disabled?
