True, but before, all I had to do is install MIT's Krb5 from src and plop
that into /usr/local/krb5, then compile SSH with Krb5 support.  (SSH Inc's
version only compiles with MIT Krb5 support)  I'll take a stab at doing
that again, but I could only get as far as compiling the ssh client, and
was unable to compile sshd, scp, etc. before it started conflicting with
the system's Heimdal libs.  (and I was trying to give the MIT libs
priority over the system libs)

Now if I could just do that and bypass the Heimdal libs, then I would be
quite satisfied (and I could then wait for whatever integrated soluton
NetBSD decides on).  So any suggestions would be great.

Best Wishes - Peter
