I have put new patches for Kerberosless builds in kd0 and kd0.tgz at  You need both files.  If you
put MKKERBEROS=no in /etc/mk.conf, then both 4 and 5 are left out of
the build and the file lists. If you put MKKERBEROS4=no in /etc/mk.conf,
only 4 is left out of the build and lists.

The patches are more complicated than I anticipated.  The reason was
that there were modules that thought they knew how to compile with
but they could not. I fixed makefiles and sources as necessary so that
the MKKERBEROS=yes MKKERBEROS4=no case would work. I eliminated the
MKKERBEROS=no MKKERBEROS4=yes case.  I asked some folks about this,
first. Thor (tls@) and Love (lha@) believe very strongly that a Kerberos
4-only build was a loathsome thing not worthy supporting.  Neither Love
nor Tracy (tracy@) think that a Kerberos 4-only build is possible.
However, there are makefiles and source files that both indicate *someone*
thought a 4-only build was possible (maybe even desirable). Speak up:
if these patches go in, 4-only builds will break worse than already.
