Where should I have seen that?  I've seen a recent MIT advisory on
bugtraq, which may or may not be about the same thing, but not one for
Heimdal.  I now realize it's on the web site, but that's not explicit
about how `you should disable [Kerberos 4 support]'.

I think it would be useful if announcements were copied to
heimdal-discuss, which is what I'd expect.

The web site implies I can fix the configuration without rebuilding --
is that false?

That's why I'm asking, but it's not that easy to upgrade.
