Chris, can you provide us with a list of files and changes that need to be
made to implement a non-US (specifically an Australian) version of
/usr/src/domestic? That way I can keep my code in `sync' except for the
replaced version of non_braindead_crypt.c...
A note for people using the Australian mirror (netbsd.rmit.edu.au):
The above change will not affect the tree on this machine; the version
of crypt() there is still FreeSec by David Burren. Once I work out how
to make a `/usr/src/domestic' (with FreeSec), the change will occur but
no command will be affected in functionality. Until then, don't worry...
PS: Note that FreeSec *cannot* be exported outside of Australia at this
