This has been removed from draft-ietf-krb-wg-crypto-xx which has been
approved for publication as a proposed standard.  This draft is
intended to replace the sections of RFC 1510 that discuss encryption
and will do so as soon as draft-ietf-krb-wg-kerberos-clarifications-xx
is approved for publication.

It was never mandatory to implement and I don't know anyone who did.
I believe our code has a #define for the enctype, but doesn't actually
implement it.
