our samba packages use the heimdal that is shipped with s4, we don't use the
system krb libs.

theoretically red hat could also ship a s4 ad dc with built in heimdal kdc but
afaik they are working on MIT integration.

yes, the packages are upgradable from previous sernet packages and also from
the distribution vendor packages.
