thanks sketch for pointing this out.

I'm trying to build on a test vm to see if it works.. but meanwhile

i took a look into the src rpm.
and found
to be very enlightening... probably in my case it will be better to 
stick with CentOS 6 and SerNet packages and look forward to upgrade 
later... when i build a DC it is only for that function, so I prefer 
SerNet repo for the peace of mind.

here's the contents of file:

MIT Kerberos 5 Support

Fedora is using MIT Kerberos implementation as its Kerberos 
infrastructure of
choice. The Samba build in Fedora is using MIT Kerberos implementation 
in order
to allow system-wide interoperability between both desktop and server
applications running on the same machine.

At the moment the Samba Active Directory Domain Controller implementation is
not available with MIT Kereberos. FreeIPA and Samba Team members are 
working on Samba MIT Kerberos support as this is a requirement for a 
distribution integration of Samba AD DC features.

We have just finished migrating the file server and all client utilities 
to MIT
Kerberos.  The result of this work is available in samba-* packages in 
We'll provide Samba AD DC functionality as soon as its support of MIT 
KDC will be ready.

In case of further questions do not hesitate to send your inquiries to
samba-owner at fedoraproject.org

I'll post here if I find something new
