I can follow the steps described in the MIT pkinit instructions from
above. Besides creating the needed certificates you only have to modify
krb5.conf on the IPA server and client. The kadmin steps are not needed
here because pre-authentication is already requeired for all IPA users.

yes, this was mainly done because there are special requirements on the
certificates as can been seen from the MIT document, which where hard to
meet to at the time.

With the latest version of FreeIPA we now have certificate profiles
which should allow an automatic pkinit setup in future versions of IPA.
My plan is to check what is needed here during the next weeks.
