I wrote an krb5-authentication method for cyrus-imapd-2.1.x which is
available under:


This file has to be copied into the lib/ subdirectory and ./configure
must be called with '--with-auth=krb5' to enable it.

Now, cyradm can use GSSAPI credentials, and entries in /etc/imapd.conf

| admins: */cyradm

are possible. The example above would allow e.g. the KRB5-principals
joe/cyradm and ensc/cyradm to do admistrative tasks.

The file above was written for my personal usage; if there is wider
interest, I am willing to do the needed steps to make it fit into the
official cyrus-imapd package.
