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).
