You can install Heimdal's libkafs if you want to use that API, but for
most purposes you can just call k_setpag() and then system("aklog") and it
works about as well.  It does mean a fork, and you have to be careful
about your Kerberos ticket cache to make sure aklog can read it, but it
lets aklog do all of its magic (including rxkad-kdf support, which Heimdal
doesn't have yet).
