Happy Boxing Day.

| I'm trying to get the 20001220-krb patch installed on my virginal
| 1.5 system.  I successfully applied the patch under the /usr/src
| heirarchy and then went into crypto/dist/krb4 to rebuild K4.

dist/ subdirectories are intended to be used to build software;
they are the software hierarchy "as distributed". When the advisory

/ Systems running 1.5 should apply the patch found in
/     ftp://ftp.NetBSD.ORG/pub/NetBSD/misc/security/patches/20001220-krb
/ and then rebuild and reinstall both the "libkrb" library and telnetd.

that means you should cd to /usr/src/lib/libkrb and /usr/src/libexec/telnetd
to do the 'make' and 'make install'.

Our advisories could certainly be clearer on this topic.


| 1) did a fresh ./configure to generate the Makefile's
| 2) added 'const' to include/version.h def's to fix problem with lib/krb/rw.c
| 3) did 'make'
| 4) did 'make install'
