All the libraries, header files, and (to the best of my knowledge)
kerberos specific programs and daemons are installed (e.g., kadmind,
kinit, hprop).  login, passwd, telnet and telnetd have all been
modified to optionally use krb5.  (Anything else?  Johan?  Assar?)

I'm still working on adding krb4 + GSSAPI to ftpd, and some of the
initial work to support that has been committed.  Work progresses

I (personally) don't plan to go mucking about adding krb5 support
to rsh/rshd, or rlogin/rlogind...  I consider rlogin obsolete, and
rsh just looked like a real pain, to me.  I don't know what the
status is of ssh, cvs, or whatever other dist/ packages there are
in the base system, w/ regard to krb5...
