It turns out that it wasn't, and correcting that got things going.

This also confirmed for me that Heimbal and MIT keytabs are equivalent.
Since mod_auth_kerb was built (has to be built, more like) against MIT
and yet it accepted a keytab created by Heimdals kadmin, I think I can
use the same trick to extract a keytab for my MIT RedHat 7.3
workstations and just scp it over.

Yes, that's the module that I'm using as well. Their patches for Mozilla
and Apache look seriously interesting ... much better than the "dump the
login page onto SSL" approach.
