Comment out examples in default /etc/krb5.conf

MIT kerberos now works without configuration. The default configuration file should work out of the box.

The default krb5.conf sets default_realm to EXAMPLE.COM as an example which would need to be changed. It is not normally necessary for most kerberos clients to edit the krb5.conf file, so its better to comment these examples out. This prevents the confusion of trying to use EXAMPLE.COM as a default_realm.

If a user wishes to use them as a guideline, they are still available to be edited and uncommented.
