I think I fixed the problem. I installed cifs-util and then created the 
/etc/requestkey.conf shown above. Finally I SUID /sbin/mount.cifs and 
rebooted (seems to clear out any cache). Voila I can now automount with 
this /etc/auto.home:

nas> cat /etc/auto.home
# File: /etc/auto.home
# cifs automount
* -fstype=cifs,sec=krb5,multiuser,username=NAS$ 

Now I seem to find and can mount user home directories.
