Solaris problem after installing MIT 1.6.3

Please point me to the correct list if this is wrong.
I was having an issue compiling samba3.2.3 on my Solaris 10 box. It
would not compile with the native Solaris 10 Kerberos libraries. I
installed MIT Kerberos 1.6.3 from source and was able to successfully
install Samba by pointing it to the MIT libraries. 
Prior to installing MIT 1.6.3 Kerberos, I was getting debug information
from Since the installation however I get nothing. I get
nothing in the messages log concerning the failed kerberos login
attempts nor for successful. Is there something I can do to get pam_krb5
to log messages again? Something perhaps I forgot to do after installing
the MIT version. As I understand it, Solaris 10 Kerberos is based on MIT
Kerberos. The way I was getting debug info from previously
was by appending debug to the lines in pam.conf. Does installing the MIT
version of Kerberos change the way pam_krb5 logs debug output? Perhaps
in the app_defaults section in the krb5.conf file?
