How do we like our base kerberos? Will it flee soon?

It looks like i do also still have the old kerberos tools (kinit,kadmin
etc.) in the base prefix and they do now segfault:

/libexec/ Shared object "" not found, required
by "kinit"

# ls /usr/local/lib/libkafs*
/usr/local/lib/libkafs.a        /usr/local/lib/
/usr/local/lib/       /usr/local/lib/

Using that. Patch applied and build cleanly. saslauthd starts as

But i do have some problems now getting tickets. This machine is a
kerberos slave. if i start ipropd-slave with local kdc running i get:

krb5_get_init_creds: Client
(iprop/ at PCPOOL.PHYSIK.TU-BERLIN.DE) unknown

when local kdc is not running authentication works but i get:

ipropd-slave[28610]: connection successful to master:[]
ipropd-slave[28610]: ipropd-slave started at
version: 10166
ipropd-slave[28610]: db->open:
dbm_open(/var/heimdal/heimdal): Inappropriate file type or format

Which i can understand because the db is at /var/heimdal/heimdal.db
which in turn is correctly specified in /etc/krb5.conf. Are there any
config syntax changes between 0.6.3 and 1.4, so i have to modify my
krb5.conf ?
