[Samba] Mounting a cifs share using kerberos for authentication.

I would like to mount a cifs share using kerberos for authentication. I'm
able to connect to the share using smbclient:
$ smbclient //server/share -k
and I'm able to mount the share using username/password pair entered
# mount -t cifs //server/share /mnt -o user=smbuser
or using a `credentials' file:
# mount -t cifs //server/share /mnt -o credentials=/home/smbuser/.smbpw
After reading the mount.cifs manpage, I was led to believe that I could get
authentication with kerberos to work using the options:
guest: to suppress password prompting
sec=krb5: to use Kerberos v5 for authentication
But, the following command:
# mount -t cifs //server/share /mnt -o guest,sec=krb5
> mount error 95 = Operation not supported
I've gone through the related manpages and samba documentation to no avail.
Does anyone have any useful suggestions?
Until next time, Colin.
