Hi.  I have not looked at this specific implementation, but I have
encountered the Redhat PAM module and would like to gvie astrong
disrecommendation to that code base.

It seems like the module does way too much and has too much internal
information about the Kerberos implementation.  In particular, it even
parses krb5.conf (incorrectly).
