It gets the port number from /etc/services, so if that's wrong it
would explain it.

I think (if the theory above is correct) the crucial line is:

	def_port = ntohs(krb5_getportbyname (context, "kerberos", "udp", 88));

where it looks up kerberos/udp in services, and if that doesn't exist
defaults to port 88.

You can also set the port in krb5.conf (kdc = host:port).
