PAC Validation

In my work on Samba4, I'm trying to actually handle the kerberos PAC
(compared with Samba3 approach of ignoring the problem).

As such, I'm trying to both parse the PAC (reasonably easy, with Samba's
NDR layer), and to validate the signatures.  

Has anybody on this list actually managed to follow the specification
Microsoft published, using the MIT Kerberos API?  I'm particularly
interested in public code I can just reference, but I'll take hits as
well :-)

In my attempts so far, I've extended Heimdal's kerberos and GSSAPI, but
I've not yet made it work.
