  I was using gdb to get the backtrace of the crash.  One more quick question I am using following options while compiling the kerberos 

--enable-pkinit=yes and --with-pkinit-crypto-impl=openssl for pkinit do i need both these options for pkinit support or if they are removed from compile options pkinit still works?

Best Regards,

I don't suppose you can run this through valgrind?  Crashing in free()

implies a previous memory error (which might have been in OpenSSL,

libkrb5, or the application), and it's much easier to debug if you can

find the original error.
