I think you need to remove the __cplusplus change in Samba3 to make
things compile.

Samba4 has integrated Heimdal as their KDC as the architecture
is vastly easier to integrate than the MIT codebase (having
the Heimdal author help with this also hasn't hurt :-).

Having said that no major vendor is currently planning to ship
Heimdal as their KDC code so it'll have to eventually be made
to work with MIT. No easy answers I'm afraid :-).
