David Rhodus and I are now going back an forth on how to do this best. I
already sent him a patch that can be applied to src/kerberos5 which I
didn't generate from cvs (like the one I sent to submit@) which crudely
deletes and creates the new directory names. 

Another question regarding this: Would anyone mind terribly if krb5.conf
and the krb5 keytabs were moved to /etc/kerberosV (like OpenBSD) or to
/etc/heimdal? That way, it's easier to provide an example
(src/share/examples/etc/kerberosV/krb5.conf.example) and to plunk down a
few READMEs that quickly describe how to set up a kerberized site.

As for backwards 'compatibility', I think I can hack in something that
checks the new krb5.conf/krb5.keytab location first and then falls back to the old
location with a warning if so inclined as not to cause too much
