The latest release is 2003 so it looks largely unmaintained :/. I don't have a 
kerberos server available that I can play with, without upsetting people :). 
There's also no docs available that specify if this module is meant to be 
working through a webserver. However, you did specify a password for 
kadm5_init_with_password in php? If you have some php testcode, I can see if I 
can steal a jail to setup a test kerberos server.
