:Fixed the mixup with pidfile that was preventing kerberos5 from being
:built after pidfile() was added to libutil.  This could probably be done
:right by redoing configure with the later libutil; configure does look
:at this.  However, I don't know the canonical method, other than just by 
:hand, of getting from autoconf contrib packages to the bmake system...
:Does noone else use kerberos?  I've seen no complaints.

    Maybe we should rename pidfile() in libutil to something else
    instead.  It's a pretty aweful name for libutil to choose to use 
    anyway!  Maybe something like make_pidfile() ?  Comments?  From
    what I can tell there isn't much in our tree that actually uses it.
