Do heimdal's krb4 support libraries actually implement the same ABI as the
kerberos4kth implementation?  Depending on the details, it might be better
to Provides/Conflicts/Replaces the old krb4 lib package; but if the ABIs
aren't the same, it would be better to fix the heimdal version so that it
doesn't collide.
