Subject: Cleanup of DES library.
Cc: jis, shew, treese, mckie

I have just finished a major cleanup of the DES library configuration.
The two directories lib/des/vax and lib/des/ibmws have been merged
into a single directory lib/des/bsd; architecture dependancies in the
code which are #ifdef'ed on various tags now depend on the inclusion
of the file des_conf.h, which contains two sets of declarations (one
for the VAX, one for the RT), #ifdef'ed on "vax" and "ibm032".

I had to make a number of fixes to support the new IBM compiler (which
lints and compiles in one pass), and I have not yet cleaned up all of
the things which it warns about (such as unreferenced variables, etc).

The library has been successfully regression-tested using the test
suite, and kinit and other Kerberos client programs are known to work
with it on both VAX and RT.  Also, all source files are known to be
checked in and cleaned up by Release Engineering standards.  (Win,
sorry for filling your mailbox with notifications of forced breaking
of RCS locks..).

The sources have not yet been moved back over & installed on Paris
(since PAZ.MIT.EDU just crashed for unknown reasons); this will be
done as soon as PAZ is back up.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO v IBM.
