I don't know what is in the krb5-workstation RPM. However, if I were
packaging things I would break it out into:
* common libraries
* kerberos clients (kinit, klist, kdestroy)
* kerberos servers (krb5kdc, kadmind, krb524d, etc.)
* and then some set of application clients and servers (rcmd, telnet,
Installing a kerberos client should not result in the installation of a
KDC nor should it install services that are not directly related.
