Look at the sources for kvno (src/clients/kvno/kvno.c in the 
krb5-1.3.1 sources) for sample code which gets a service ticket 
manually from a TGT.   Note that if you are on Mac OS X and trying to 
store a v4 service ticket you will need to call into the CCAPI rather 
than the tf_*() APIs.

Note that service tickets are usually automatically acquired when you 
try to connect to a service.  Is there some reason you need to get a 
service ticket manually (that isn't already covered by some other 
utility such as kvno or aklog)?

Hope this helps,
