Ok I was able to solve this.

Apparently even when building with an explict --with-krb5=/usr/local,
something still managed to use the libraries in /usr/kerberos/lib.


You can junk the libs on RHES v2.1 because a bunch of things depend
on them.  So my solution was to rename /usr/kerberos to /usr/kerberosX
and recompile samba.

I don't know whether to consider it a bug or a feechure that even
with the --with-krb5= option supplied to configure that either the
compiler, linker or configure gets the explict lib pick up wrong.

My problem is solved but just FYI on the behavior of --with-krb5= ...
