The KfM 4.0 for Mac OS X installer should have installed a crypto 
shim library: "/usr/lib/libk5crypto.dylib".  Could you re-run the 
installer and verify that this file is not generated?

If you can't get it working, you can symlink shim libraries in 
/usr/lib to the Kerberos framework 
"/System/Library/Frameworks/Kerberos.framework/Kerberos" as a 
workaround.  If you make all the shim libraries symlinks (no real 
files) to the Kerberos.framework, the right thing will happen.
