How does the AFS client determine if KFW is installed/running or not?  
Is there some type of configurable option to force production of 
Kerberos 4 tickets within the tokens when running aklog, even if 
Kerberos 5 tickets are available?

I need to be able to use ms2mit, k524init, and aklog from the KFW 
package for seamless logins.  Unfortunately, we aren't able to upgrade 
our db servers at this time because if our understanding is correct, we 
must upgrade all file servers too, and then all clients, and we still 
need to access other cells outside of our control which are still using 
older AFS builds and don't support Kerberos 5.
