The problem is that Solaris 2.6 and up report a different error than do
other Un*x type systems when the buffer provided by the app for getting
at the ifconf structures is too small. It's a simple patch to MIT krb5
to handle this difference. I posted such a patch for MIT krb5 v1.2.2
sometime ago, either on this list or the krbdev list; see:




It's possible that MIT krb5 v1.1.1 does hardcode the buffer size. You
can always just increment this size and recompile. Or you could steal
the relevant code from v1.2.2 or you could even upgrade.
