problem with kerberos telnetd on AIX

AIX allows administrators to set limits (stacksize, datasize, number of
files, etc.) for individual users as defined in the file
We noticed that limits are not set for users when they login using kerberos
telnet, but they work fine when users log in with ssh.
I posted a note on comp.unix.aix, and someone told me that telnetd needs to
call setpcred to set limits in AIX. I looked in the source code for ssh
and found the following in the function do_setusercontext (sets login name,
uid, gid, groups):
#endif /* HAVE_SETPCRED */
I found no reference to setpcred the telnetd source code.
Does anyone know if there is a version of kerberos telnetd with a call to
setpcred? If not, do any of you telnetd experts have any suggestions for
how to modify it?
