Is Kerberos a required dependency for some package? If yes, the it must be 
installed, if not, then no problem.

That is to handle "requred" dependencies, and maybe "recomended", the ones 
needed to run the commands hardcoded in the book. Optional dependies are for 
the user to decide install it or not.

I agree. We can create the base scripts and a Makefile with all targets, but 
maybe only some of that targets will can be run "as is". Many targets/scripts 
could need some manual edits to work.
