Using Kerberos to authenticate as manager

I know that OpenLDAP can be used in conjunction with kerberos to 
authenticate users, but I would like to know if (like Postgres and others), I can use a 
kerberos ticket to authenticate to the directory as manager. Just to 
clarify what I am asking, let me describe the scenario: Currently, I can 
use kerberos in perl to create a ticket and authenticate to my Postgres database without 
having to put the password in the script. With OpenLDAP, I would like to 
do the same in my perl/php scripts. Is this possible? If so, where's a 
good doc?
