OK, things move on, whilst trying to build MIT krb5, I got the above,
so rather than re-invent the wheel, I have used them, thanks Louis ;-)

I now have a test MIT DC in a VM, but (there is always a but, isn't
there ;-) ) I cannot kinit. When I try, I get this:

kinit Administrator
kinit: Cannot contact any KDC for realm 'TEST.TLD' while getting
initial credentials

Am I now supposed to start the MIT kdc ?

If I do try to start it, I get:

service krb5-kdc start
[....] Starting Kerberos KDC: krb5kdckrb5kdc: cannot initialize realm TEST.TLD - see log file for details

and there is this in auth.log:

May  2 16:25:35 devtestdc krb5kdc[7911]: Cannot open DB2 database
'/var/lib/krb5kdc/principal': No such file or directory - while
initializing database for realm TEST.TLD
