I would add that, while asetkey is not necessary with Heimdal
(anywhere you can specify a keytab, you can use AFSKEYFILE:...
instead), aklog has some advantages over afslog because it
communicates with the ptserver and produces tokens which look more
correct when your Kerberos principal's pts ID is different from your
Unix uid (as with admin instances, for example).
