I'm trying to compile 7.3.2 on Solaris 7 with the built-in Kerberos 
IV support.  To avoid conflicts I do not have ssl support turned on.

Configure goes and looks for libkrb with some routine that is there. 
Then it checks for libdes with des_encrypt.  Now first of all there 
is no libdes on Sol7.  There's only the one that was put in when I 
added ssl.  Second there is no des_encrypt in openssl.  Third there 
is no des_encrypt in the Heimdal/KTH-KRB implementation either.

So is that routine actually one that's used?  If so where did it come 
from, and whose implementation of what actually provided it?

Or has everyone just abandoned K4 and we should forget about it?

(Yes, I know all about the latest problems found with K4.  As long as 
you are using patched/old MIT code and not doing cross-realm 
authentication you're probably better off than with a lot of versions 
of K5.)
The opinions expressed in this message are mine,
not those of Caltech, JPL, NASA, or the US Government.
