Well, Kerberos is not required. By default in the caldavd-test.plist we 
have Kerberos Digest and Basic authentication enabled. If the Kerberos 
subsystem is not properly setup, the calendar server will start, but 
Kerberos will not be offered as an authentication option - Digest and Basic 
will still be available.

If you want, you can disable Kerberos in the caldavd.plist file until such 
a time as you have the necessary service principal keytab entries etc.
