There was old kerberos/afs code which is unusable.  There's newer stuff
for AD etc. support, but it really wants heimdal as I understand it
(certainly Tridge's current work for samba4 is all heimdal-based).  I'm
not sure it would build against MIT krb5, since heimdal exports a bunch
of useful stuff that MIT doesn't.

I'm also under the impression that samba3 can't really do the PDC thing
properly at present; that's the primary focus of samba4 development.
