Ahh, I'll just trade you this fine lease on swampland in Florida for
your first born, shall I?

NFSv4 is *NOT* your friend, and Kerberizing it effectively is not
trivial. I'm using Centrify for that and to have a reliable upstream
vendor who can actually support it. (I'm on a contract.) What's the
issue you're encountering, besides the lack of "nfs4-acl-editor" in
the RPM's.

nfs4-acl-editor is actually built into the nfs4 tools source tree,
it's just not compiled. It's not a perfect tool, but I think well
worth getting into the "extras" repository for CentOS.
