Most of Ken's package was incorporated either into MIT krb5 or openafs.
For example, asetkey is found in the openafs-krb5 rpm. fakeka is in the
current MIT krb5 but needs to be enabled when built. I don't think it is
built by default and may not be enabled in the RPM you are using.

The one orphaned piece from Ken's package you may need if you use MIT is
afs2krb5. This will convert your KA database to krb5 database. It is not
really maintained anymore and is a bit of a pain to build but you only
need to use it once. If you go with heimdal you don't need it at all.
