Mounting SMB with Kerberos

There's a bit of info concerning Samba acting as a server with Kerberos 
authentication out on the web.  I'm needing to go the other way with this 
though.  I need to mount on a FreeBSD box an SMB share with Kerberos 
authentication.  In this case, FreeBSD is acting as the client.

I didn't see any references to this in the mount_smbfs man page, nor have I 
had much luck in tracking any information down on the web.  Is this even 

So you know, this is not trying to connect to a Windows server.  Unfortunately 
this does have to be SMB to the box I'm trying to connect to.
