I guess your installed krb5-config comes from system heimdal.

In wscript_configure_system_mitkrb5 we have this:

vendor = conf.cmd_and_log(conf.env.KRB5_CONFIG+['--vendor'])
conf.env.KRB5_VENDOR = vendor.strip().lower()
if conf.env.KRB5_VENDOR != 'heimdal':

I think if KRB5_VENDOR is heimdal, we should bail out.
