fully kerberize cups (update to 1.3.x)

Description of problem:
Due to IPA requirements, cups needs to be fully kerberized. For details, please
see Karl Wirth
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Please put details here. In particular, CUPS does already have Kerberos support
-- what is missing that is required for IPA?
The IPA team thought that cups was not kerberized in RHEL. Does this support
ship with RHEL? Has this support been well exercised?
Oh, I was mistaken in comment #1. In RHEL-5 there is no Kerberos support in
CUPS (1.2.x). Kerberos support is present in CUPS 1.3.x, available in Fedora 8.
So can we move to CUPS 1.3.x for RHEL 5.2? That is what this bug request is for.
Usually we back-port changes to the versions originally shipped -- 1.2.4 in this
case. 1.3.x is a new major version and would need a very large amount of
Is that really what we want to do?
(I'm not saying that back-porting the Kerberos support is any less work -- the
changes are quite widespread -- just that it's quite unusual to switch to a new
package version in a supported release.)
