No, it should work the same.

We did have a bug in 1.6 where the kdc.conf file would be used  
unconditionally (relating to some changes in how we handled the list  
of config files), but as far as I know, both KDC and non-KDC programs  
should be getting the right config files in 1.6.1 and later.

Our test suite specifies port numbers for the programs so we can run  
tests as non-root users.  If it wasn't working, our test suite  
couldn't run the KDC at all.  What's your config file look like?
