KFW 3.1 has to be finished first.  Then I will look to find the time to
work on the 1.5 kerberos 5 libraries on Windows in order to add
functionality that was implemented in 1.5 for POSIX but not for Windows.
The 1.5 libraries will build on Windows but they have not been
thoroughly tested and features such as plug-in support is non-existent.
