First, the options are "--disable-dns", "--enable-dns-for-realm", 
"--disable-dns-for-kdc"; if you added "<all>", under UNIX, you were 
redirecting input from a file called "all" and output to some other 

Second, I believe we're only supporting --enable-dns-for-realm in the 
upcoming release; the DNS SRV query code will always be compiled in, 
and will always default to yes for finding KDCs given a realm name 
(though the config file can override that).
