      Description

      On servers, the mongokerberos tool checks if the KRB5_CONFIG environment variable is set. If it is unset, it will fail. If it is set it will, instead of using consuming it, access the Kerberos configuration using the profile API.

      We should unconditionally consume the profile API without checking this variable.
