This is probably trivial and a "just me" problem. I am using a
non-US crypt library (
and the only program to use the des_* routines is ed(1). Is there
any way of making it use only the "standard" crypt library routines
? Nothing else seems to need the des_setkey and des_cipher routines.
This would make it possible to have a non-US crypt version of NetBSD

Alternativley, putting the des_* routines into this library should
be a reasonable task. I will *have* to do it, since you are almost
all in the US :-( and cannot re-export the work. Has somebody a
suitably vague, exportable description of what these routine do ?
One that I can then take and work from ?

Try building ed with the library made from:*
Either implement the des_* routines or redo ed not to use them.
I suspect the first would be easier.
