When I tried a long time ago, I couldn't get the Heimdal SIA module to
work.  I've been using the one at
http://www.cit.uws.edu.au/~luke/software/sia_kerberosv5/, built
against MIT.  I never got round to trying to make it work with
Heimdal.  I can't get both Kerberos and LDAP working properly under
SIA, though.

Heimdal kinit is effectively instant for me on T64 5.1B, and I don't
remember obvious slowness on earlier T64 versions.

For what it's worth, 5.1B has /dev/random and /dev/urandom.
