With current Cyrus SASL, I don't see any serious problem with
MIT Kerberos, but if you're expecting an extremely heavy load
of GSSAPI authentication and are willing to dispense with the
replay cache checks, your perspective might be different.

Funny, because the MIT developers always tell me to turn off the replay cache first thing, when using the MIT libraries, as it is something they seem to feel should *not* be used with OpenLDAP.

Set KRB5RCACHETYPE to "none".
