Very well. MIT Kerberos removed. I'm building Heimdal Kerberos even
as I type this. (Too bad Heimdal doesn't appear to have the extensive
self-test stuff MIT Kerberos has.)
I'm *assuming* I should build and install Kerberos before OpenLDAP? Or
doesn't it matter? I note Heimdal Kerberos has a --with-openldap
configure switch, but it looks like that's to allow Heimdal Kerberos to
store its data in an OpenLDAP database, rather than its own dbd.
Thanks for the quick follow-up and info, btw.
