Thats what I was afraid of. Although changing /usr/libexec shouldn't
be too hard. Not sure yet about /var/heimdal. It might be possible
just to supply a command line parameter giving a different location to
the config file. Log files also go here, too. Yuck.

Probably lots of executable files without man pages, too.

I said potato!!! Why doesn't any believe me ;-)

For now, I will

- split heimdal-x11 into heimdal-clients-x11 and heimdal-servers-x11.

- fix broken paths.

- fix kdc log file, possibly add rotation if I can find out how. Then
again, rotating security information may not be such a good idea. need
to think about this.

- attempt upload to potato, non-us section.
