  if you link binaries against -ldes and -lcrypto , the resulting sshd
will not work if client uses 3des , try it! (tested on Irix 6.5, Solaris
2.6). Blowfish cipher works even in the previous case (no surprise, the
conflicting des code is not in use). Interrestingly, with that sshd I
couldn't login as root, only as user. 

Working solution:
 Remove all occurencies of -ldes in openssh*/Makefile after the configure
step. I had to edit openssh*/defines.h and kafs.h, but this I've
already posted to the list (sorry, another list: see archive of krb4 at ). On Irix I needed to include the
-I/usr/athena/include at the very beginning of the commandline - relates
to the kafs.h problem. Otherwise no problems.

  Tested on openssh-2.9p2. The source tree with my binaries for Irix and
Solaris you can get from
