This list is for Kerberos development, not really for user questions.
Please ask kerberos at or the comp.protocols.kerberos news group

Where did you download this from?  I do not believe that MIT
distributes a version of krb4 that supports configure.  

If you are a new Kerberos user, you probably want a version of
Kerberos 5, not a version of Kerberos 4.  The Kerberos 4
implementations have not been actively maintained in years and there
may be significant security holes.  Kerberos 5 implementations often
have backwards compatibility.
