This is the approach taken in FreeBSD 5-CURRENT -- I'm not sure when it
went in (maybe a month ago), but it's simplified things a great deal. 
There are some fairly big KerberosIV deployments out there (and small
ones), but they need additional motivation to get on the ball :-).  The
other thing that has simplified the build infrastructure is reducing the
level of support for crypto-free distributions.
