Yes ;-)

I have always copied the krb5.conf, but if you did symlink it, this
would work because the permissions allowed it. From 4.7.0 the
permissions will be tightened and only a limited number of accounts (or
maybe only root) will be allowed access into the dir, so using a symlink
will not work anymore.
