Finding the version of kinit/klist

The OpenAFS people force a string into their programs at compile time, no 
extra flags. Doing e.g. 'strings /usr/vice/etc/afsd | grep OpenAFS' shows 
the version. A similar setup for krb5 would suffice; just propagate the
corresponding item of krb5-config into kinit/klist/kdestroy.
In an AFS environment using ssh, almost no other krb5 programs are needed.
