The Kerberos connection method in CVS is specifically for Kerberos 4.  
Kerberos 5 is supported by the GSSAPI connection method instead.

All you need to do is ensure that Kerberos 5 is installed, and configure 
CVS compilation with "--with-gssapi".  (Well, you also need to add a 
"cvs/<server hostname>" principal and so on...)

For more information you can consult the Cederqvist, section 2.9.4.
