As was already pointed out, the Kerberos bundled with Solaris 9
is based on MIT 1.2.1

No, but you can install MIT Kerberos and use the binaries that come with
it and change your PATH variable so that the MIT binaries are
found first.

Solaris 10 has many features from MIT 1.3.X - AES, 3DES, and RC4 crypto,
TCP support, IPv6 support, and more (integrated Kerberos in bundled
remote apps - rlogin, telnet, ftp, rcp, rsh, rdist, ssh, SASL/GSSAPI,
SPNEGO, ...). 

You can try Solaris 10 today as part of the Solaris Express program and
see for yourself.
