It was a long time since I did this, but I though I wrote most of it down
into the documentation.

I think you want to run it like this:

If you are converting a kerberos 4 to kerberos 5 database on the same host,
you probably want to run it like this:

 hprop -n --source=krb4-dump -d /var/kerberos/principal.dump \
      --master-key=/.k | hpropd -n
