I built a setup using openfire (the IM server) that utilized kerberos.
It is slightly tricky unfortunately, kerberos has been the realm of
universities and big business for a long time so a lot of things are not
straight forward.

Pidgin does natively support kerberos so you can use that easily, the
way to use kerberos in pidgin is simply not to provide it with any
password info, it will try kerberos in the process. This works both on
windows (using kfw) and linux systems, probably macs too, but I have
never tested it on macs.

I will see if I can dig up some notes from configuring openfire.
