Solaris 9 comes with a Solaris specific version based on MIT kerberos
version 1.2.1.

I think you have three choices: 1. upgrade to Solaris 10 when that's
available, 2. install MIT kerberos and use their kerberos utilities or
3. contact your Sun service provider and request this support in Solaris

I assume you want Kerberos TCP support.  This is in Solaris 10 (amongst
a variety of enhancements).
