I assume you mean crypt.c with code?
The readme explains how it was done, i.e. patch in the appropriate things into
crypt.c. Should I mention there that the original exportable crypt.c is in
lib/libcrypt and that the euro.patch.crypt.c is also located there?
firstname.lastname@example.org assured the code was made in Europe, and next time he is
around I will ask him who made the code.

Given that Andrew's statement is true, the code is intainted.
The only thing that may be tainted are the Makefiles with the $NetBSD$ tag.

Yes. ed and init do have the hooks, and so there is the appropriate flag set
in the appropriate Makefile. Basically, the only thing missing is kerberos
You mention all of this is available to anyone. Yes. But it's work to
integrate. And I do think it would be nice to integrate that into European
trees. Do you know of a complete drop-in kerberos?
Is there an overview what is in the domestic tree in the US?
