kerberos-config needs to set allow_weak_crypto

Upstream bug:


The ATHENA.MIT.EDU KDC seems to only support the des-cbc-crc enctype. As of krb5 1.8, that's defined as "weak crypto", and the krb5 clients won't talk to the KDC by default.

Until the KDC is upgraded or reconfigured to allow shinier enctypes, we need to set allow_weak_crypto = true in the [libdefaults] section of krb5.conf.

From some preliminary testing, it looks like that setting has no affect in the older versions of krb5 we still support.
