I suppose I should have said "./configure --with-krb5 on OS X 10.3, you 
need those flags".  The reason for this is that 10.3 doesn't have the 
krb5-config script (which ./configure looks for by default).

The advantages to having krb5 is that you can use Kerberos to get tokens 
as opposed to the kaserver (I believe, since I've only used Kerberos).
