Mac OS 10.3 only supports the "gssapi" method that is in Openssh 3.6. 
Its probably not working b/c newer clients use the "gssapi-with-mic" 
method (OpenSSH 3.8 and newer.)

You either need to enable the "gssapi" method in your SSH client, if you 
can, or upgrade to Mac OS 10.4 "Tiger."  The Debian ssh-krb5 package 
supports a "GSSAPINoMICAuthentication" option in /etc/ssh/ssh_config. 
You might want to try that.
