ssh linkage madness

I have been hacking heimdal support for ssh and have found two problems:

1. The TGT passing was done before the authentication was attempted (!)
   so the local_subkey was not present which caused Assars recent implementation
   of krb5_fwd_tgt_creds to fail early in the call to krb5_get_forwarded_creds.

   SSH clearly assumes that the underlying stream is already encrypted and
   the MIT code (am I right Ken?) must then returns the credentials un-
   encrypted unless there is a session key to use?!?!?
   I just switched them to see if I could get the authentication to work.
   Then I got this:

2. When running under gdb (the lines beginning with "after" are my additions)
   ssh craps out in des_encrypt !

toast.matematik.su.se: Trying Kerberos V5 authentication.
after krb5_cc_get_principal
after krb5_get_credentials
after krb5_auth_con_init
after krb5_auth_con_init, krb5_auth_con_setflags

A careful inspection of the code shows that in des_new_random_key the
execution path takes a vacation in ssh-land where the des_* functions
from ssh are called instead of those from heimdals libdes, an obviously
doomed situation.

There is a prototype conflict which Assar informs me is due to the fact
that ssh has taken libdes and changed the prototypes wo changing the names.

Could the person who claimed to have gotten the authentication stuff working
(sorry, forgot your name) please say how you got around this problem.  I have 
put my current ssh-heimdal tarball on ftp://ftp.matematik.su.se/pub/leifj/
for reference.

Otherwize one has to go through the ssh code and change the name of every
des-function. Fun!
