kpasswd over firewall ans TCP

I like to use kpasswd, but the kpasswd_server is behind a firewall and
only TCP port 464 is allowed.
But as i see, kpasswd only uses UDP. Setting udp_preference_limit to 0
(under libdefaults)
didn't help.
So I tried to check in the sources and found in changepw.c, that UDP
is hard coded?

I've found in change_set_password use_tcp=0. So socktype is SOCK_DGRAM
(int socktype = (use_tcp ? SOCK_STREAM : SOCK_DGRAM))

Is there any way to persuade kpasswd to use TCP ???

Thanks Meike
