On the client (library) side, I don't think it's a problem.  It's in 
the krb5 library, which wouldn't be dependent on the krb4 library, so 
if we just don't build the latter, I think we'd still be okay.

The krb524d server calls into the krb4 library for creating krb4 
tickets and converting lifetime values.  If we cripple that 
functionality and just create the magic krb5-based AFS tokens by other 
means, yeah, we could probably build the server too.
