Thanks for digging thru this and reporting back. I remember readhat is 
working on making samba compatible with mit kerberos. On debian/ubuntu 
you can use "apt-get build-dep samba" to grab all the dependencies 
necessary for the repo package. I assume with this the required heimdal 
packages would have been installed.
I use MIT gssapi and util's pakckages here on debian and have not yet 
had an problem with samba-addc's (not using member servers).
What was the issue with upstart, the script you reference looks like an 
samba ad-dc start script?
