We need to document that kerberos support needs "Unlimited Strength" Java

As reported by local site-admins:


dCache Kerberos doesn't work out-of-the-box. This is because Sun/Oracle? deliver Java in a crippled state (deliberately) so it satisfies all the import/export requirements in the world.

They provide a download patch that (re-)enables support for strong encryption, called "Unlimited Strength" download. Downloading and installing this fixes the issue with Kerberos.

The problem is we currently don't document that this step is needed.

(affected are kerberos-ftp and kerberos-dcap)
