I think the problem is here in

def make_kdcconf(realm, domain, kdcconfdir, logdir):

    if _glue.is_heimdal_built:

Which I changed to:

    if is_heimdal_built:

The problem seems to be that 'is_heimdal_built' should be 'False' and
so shouldn't return, but it isn't, so it does return and 'kdc.conf'
doesn't get created. I commented the 'if' out and did get 'kdc.conf'
created, not that it helped, I still didn't get anything listening on
port 88.

I think the problem has something to do with whatever is setting
'is_heimdal_built' to 'True', but I do not know what this is, or indeed
if it is the problem.
