The bare minimum:

   * A configuration file (usually /etc/krb5.conf, but with MIT Kerberos you
     can set the environment variable KRB5_CONFIG to point to the location
     of the configuration file).
   * The Kerberos client binaries. At a minimum, you would need:
        o kinit
        o kdestroy
        o klist
        o telnet
     And whatever other client programs your users would use (rlogin, ftp).

As a data point, our Kerberos client kits we distribute to our user
community contain the following files:

   * krb5.conf
   * kinit
   * kdestroy
   * klist
   * kpasswd
   * telnet
   * rcp
   * rlogin
   * rsh
   * ftp
