This location is given by the --localstatedir option of the configure script. 
This used so that the kerberos variable run-time data is located in /var/lib 
instead of /usr/var (default in the configure script). The kdc.conf file is 
installed in LOCALSTATEDIR/krb5kdc/kdc.conf.

There is no real standard for this location. I do not have a strong opinion on 
this, so I could change it to a more appropriate place.

Here are the locations used by some other distros :
Slackware : /var/krb5kdc/kdc.conf
LFS, Gentoo : /var/lib/krb5kdc/kdc.conf
fedora, Suse : /var/kerberos/kdc.conf
Debian, Ubuntu : /etc/krb5kdc/kdc.conf
Mandriva : /etc/kerberos/krb5kdc/kdc.conf
