There is no tkt_lifetime component in the context structure... and
from a quick glance there is nothing that actually reads that variable
out of the context. Certainly the code is commented out in a sloppy
manner if that was the intent. Thanks for bringing this to our

State-Changed-Why: Fixed by making the commenting out of the code more
obvious. This functionality is not supported by the library,
and won't be for now. Maybe after the 1.0 release....

Show quoted text
The following code, beginning at line 72 of src/lib/krb5/krb/init_ctx.c,
appears to preclude use of the "tkt_lifetime" option in krb5.conf.
The error apparently consists of an unterminated comment and an
erroneous assignment to ctx->clockskew.

/* Default ticket lifetime is
profile_get_integer(ctx->profile, "libdefaults", "tkt_lifetime",
0, 10 * 60 * 60, &tmp);
ctx->clockskew = tmp;

/* DCE 1.1 and below only support CKSUMTYPE_RSA_MD4 (2) */
