BSD authentication enabled in -current
Last evening I committed my patches to enable BSD authentication
throughout the source tree. This means that the auth programs are
now build and installed in /usr/libexec/auth and things like login,
su, ftpd, su, sshd, etc now use them.
You can read bsd_auth(3), authenticate(3) and login_cap(3) for
info on BSD authentication.
NOTE WELL: the kerberos support is currently untested. I've
been unsuccessful in my attempts to get people to test this
and give me a yea or a nay so, at the request of the kerberos
folks, I have just committed it as is. It should get cleaned
up soon as the kerberos guys are actively working on the
kerberos 5 integration anyway. In the meantime though, you
might want to think twice about -current if you use kerberos.
