We should push people towards 1.4.12, when its released, which will  
solve this problem (MIT added a hook to let us selectively enable weak  
crypto for aklog, 1.4.12 uses that hook).

Users using older versions of OpenAFS will need to set  
"allow_weak_crypto = true" in the libdefaults section of the krb5.conf  
on all clients running MIT Kerberos 1.8.
