Are -lcrypto and -lcom_err both MIT K5 distribution libraries?
Is -lcom_err the same as FreeBSD's -lcom_err ?

We link with this library under FreeBSD when we use -lfetch (URL

and other contributors need it to work for.  That is, I am
willing to integrate code for any environment to which
someone is willing to support (ie: development/maintain).

What about AFS Kerberos?

Yes.  I'd like to localize this as much as possible...
