Question about excluding the PAC

All, I have a Kerberos 5 implementation running on Linux and is integrated with the web server for website SSO access.

I have a need to exclude the PAC from the request ticket and am looking for the simplest way to do that.

I see that kinit has the option "--no-request-pac"

Is there a similar way to do it from the krb5.conf or does it need a custom shared object?

If it needs a custom shared object, can someone provide sample code?  I am not able to tell from the existing documentation what needs to be done.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
