I do it this way for .PATH reasons..  krb5 comes with a complete libtelnet
distribution, and domestic/lib/libtelnet reaches over into it..  One of my
goals was to use as much NetBSD source as possible, and only hook into
MIT's for kerberos specific stuff, and I couldn't see a good way to let
domestic/lib/libtelnet use MIT's encrypt.[ch], and NetBSD's ~everything
else without creating the Nocrypt/ subdirectory.

What sort of thing would you suggest?
