Got it - a couple of questions / comments:

1. I evidently don't speak Makefile jive as well as some - what does
the following change do?

+all: $(TARGETS) $(MANPAGES:%=%.out) $(CONFIGFILES:%=%.out)

2. Why the vhangup() in pty.c? What does this fix?

3. Why the excision of the BUF code in scp.c?

4. I would prefer the shadow password checking to occur during
password auth - I consider the other forms of auth to be totally
seperate, but I can see your reasoning. If you move this code to a
seperate function in auth-passwd.c which could be called before or
during password auth I will include it.
