Don't expect a solution for the 1.2.x series of code.

I think we have it working better for 1.3.x but am not sure.  I
suspect it will definitely work better once we replace the RPC

I can't think of any benefit to be gained by building kadmin or
kadmind as 64-bit applications.  You may need to build libkrb5 and
libgssapi_krb5 in 64-bit versions for application use, but the admin
tools aren't going to gain anything from 64-bit addresses.
