Description of problem:
The following fix add support for kerberos authentication when adding a new smb printer.
Note that this will only work if printconf-gui is launched via sudo using /usr/sbin/printconf-gui, and the user have a valid kerberos ticket.
(i don't know if consolehelper can pass environment variables)
As a side effect username and passord are not stored anymore in the printers.conf file, and one can only print if he have a valid ticket or anonymous printing is allowed.
Current drawback is that it requires smbspool from samba-3.0.20.
This is a fix in the printer_share_accessible function
Tested in Active Directory environment
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. user can specify printer without entering his credentials
