Well... yes and no...
Yes... in that Heimdal does compile on slink, and I have it installed
here in /usr/local without any problems (apart from being slow to
compile on a 100MHz 486).
No... in that some files conflict, eg /usr/bin/telnet, and netstd
wasn't split up in slink...
webpage... Not sure where I could put it. My Internet connection here
is too slow (14.4Kbps modem) and the files aren't extremely small
either. Upstream source is 2Mb, my files are approx 1Mb (total).
I have contacted upstream source, and asked permission to package
(thought I should be polite and let them know), and for a copyright
file (currently the best info I have is the line: "Heimdal is a free
implementation of Kerberos 5"). I expect it will be a non-copyleft
type license, judging from past experience. Maybe even similar to
Kerberos 4kth, which is already in Debian.

Currently I have /var/log/heimdal-kdc.log, as there is only one log
file that I know of.
