Solution for "Key table entry not found while getting initial credentials"

Problem (with Kerberos on Debian stable):
kinit -V -k -t /tmp/keytab HTTP/somehost@LOCALDOMAIN
kinit: Key table entry not found while getting initial credentials
However klist -k -t /tmp/keytab works and correctly displays HTTP/somehost@LOCALDOMAIN as present under Principals. The keytab entry was previously created with using addent -password -p HTTP/somehost@LOCALDOMAIN -k 1 -e rc4-hmac.
Solution:
Had to adjust /etc/krb5.conf:
default_tkt_enctypes = arcfour-hmac-md5 des-cbc-crc des-cbc-md5
default_tgs_enctypes = arcfour-hmac-md5 des-cbc-crc des-cbc-md5
