it seems the latest 1.5_ALPHA i386 snapshot still has problems with the
built in kerberos - i've been told you can't change passwords with "passwd

Can we resolve this somehow, please? Either 

 * make the kerberos code inactive until it's really configured (isn't
   that our policy?) or

 * don't build in kerberos by default. 

Given that most people don't need kerberos, forcing users to either
configure it or work around it seems suboptimal to me.
