At the 4.4BSD BoF at USENIX, CSRG mentioned that they're looking for
a volunteer to help integrate Kerberos V5 into the 4.4BSD release.

This sounds like a great way to (a) get V5 out into the world
(b) get rid of the Imake crap and use the (much more sane) 4.4BSD make
with its conditional and include facilities.

Any takers?

John

I agree that the Berkeley make is technically superior to Imake, but
that's not the only consideration.

At least in the near future (the rest of 1992) I think Kerberos V will
be more accepted and easier to build for most people if it uses Imake.
Imake is very common; I don't think 4.4 make is.
