First of all, you might consider avoiding quoted-unreadable encoding stuff
at least when it's not necessary. 

Secondly I assume it's in libcrypto.so in the libssl08 package then?
It doesn't include a library called libdes specifically.

However, there is a libdes in kerberos in the kerberos4kth package. 
It's called libdes and it's based on EAY's DES code but I think it's
a different API, which is what Kerberos expects.

Both instances are in separate packages at least in the sense that they are
"separate" from non-libraries. Having to install some extra shared libraries
(In the case of libssl08 just libssl.so, in the case of Kerberos it's a lot of
other libraries) isn't the end of the world.

$ dpkg -L libssl08

$ dpkg -L kerberos4kth
