This is due to '-prelease' suffix in version string. Following patch
should fix this issue for anything suffixed with -:;a=commitdiff;h=55205de2ea80b7f3861db075dc56192376c0ffb5

Please let me know if this patch works on OS/X and you get proper
ERROR: message on OS/X Lion due to old MIT Krb5 (1.7-prerelease).
I have tested it separately with the string you gave me and it should
produce [1,7] which is older than [1,9] that we support for MIT krb5.

A previous patch in the same tree is covering a case where you can use
embedded Heimdal to build on OS/X Lion without AD DC.
