The word "support" should probably be changed to "compatibility."

The change just extends the OpenLDAP to be compatible with a
Kerberos V installation.  The authentication mechanism is still
as defined by rfc1777.  The patch is basically only adds a
few preprocessor directives to compile with K5 headers/libraries.  

I agree that no significant authentication and/or encryption
work should be done before support LDAPv3, SASL, and a plug in
