The original heimdal code, which implements the use of of the krb5.conf
include directives, introduces a segmentation fault, due to an
uninitialized pointer. So this code does not seem to be tested very well
and I would like to remove it.

I suggest that we should keep the "heimdal: lib/krb5: do not fail
set_config_files due to parse error" as the fix for bug 11573.

Please review.
