Probably the first question is "do you really need to do this?" You may
not; it depends on what you need. If you need the kaserver dump
conversion utility, then yes, you probably do, but I think all of the
other programs have since been incorporated in either OpenAFS or in MIT
Kerberos (and I think Heimdal may have some separate solution for the
kaserver dump converter, but I don't remember).

That's probably what I'd do.
