You might have a more representative box by disabling Sun's Kerberos
altogether on Solaris 8/9 buildfarm machines.
The Kerberos that comes with Solaris 8 and 9 is so bad a lot of people
just replace it. And if you need to compile something against kerberos
then there is no choice because Solaris 8/9 doesn't have krb libraries
There are limits to this, someone from Sun set them out at
