Kerberos support in sudo?

First off, I'll admit up front that PAM makes no sense to me whatever.
So, maybe the anser is in my PAM config.

I have a 5.3 system running in a Kerberos 5 environment.  I have
configured ssh to authenticate against Kerberos just fine.  And ksu
works just right too.  But sudo, I can not get working ... it just can't
confirm a password for a user when it is run.

I changed the /etc/pamd.d/system file to look like my /etc/pam.d/sshd
file.  That doesn't seem to help.

I went into the port and slipped "--with-kerb5" into the CONFIGURE_ARGS,
and reinstalled sudo, but still, I got no love.

Anyone know how to get this working?
