Why do I have .klogin without enabling kerberos?

I just noticed /root/.klogin on both my 4.8-S systems (one of
which I just re-installed from CD today). I can't find a man page for
it, but presume it's for kerberos (it appears to be a copy of
/usr/src/etc/root/dot.klogin). I'm quite certain I never did explicit
anything to create this file, so figure it's a standard part of the
systems. Unfortunately, I can't find a man page for it, including
with "man -k login" and "man -k kerberos" -- is this an oversight, or
is there a reason it's created but not documented?
Also, I'm surprised to find /usr/sbin/kerberos on both
systems, despite not having installed any kerberos packages or ports.
doesn't discuss 'base' kerberos components.
>tabasco# file /usr/sbin/kerberos
>/usr/sbin/kerberos: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version
>1 (FreeBSD), for FreeBSD 4.8, dynamically linked (uses shared libs),
Is there a reason the kerberos binary and .klogin are
included in the base system, even without kerberos enabled in
Thanks for any enlightenment,
