openSUSE does have libheimdal and libheimdal-devel, but samba and default 
kerberos... all MIT.

With that said, way back in 2016, Red Hat promised to get problems using MIT 
kerberos resolved with regards to having a Samba DC.  In their words, 
"...Andreas, Guenther and Alexander at Red Hat are working diligently every day 
towards this. We're planning to get to that sooner rather than later." (again, 
from 2016)

Others pointed out that Red Hat's "working diligently" meant work on sssd though.
