In lib/crypto, doing a configure --disable-des-... results
in nothing being done. The reason for this happens to be that it's
describe as a "enable/disable" feature, but works internally
as a "with/without" feature. Another badly written configure item
is that the configure section to do a without works with a "withval"
while the default value ends up being a "enableval". The latter is
the one used in the test to actually enable/disable a given package.

This bug in the configure script is not very critical by itself
(since I've been able to work around it :-), however, disabling
the crypto libs do not work for the utils (kdb5_util, ...) or the
kdc. It is very welcome to be able to specify a Null master-key-type
and Null .*enctype.

in lib/crypto:

e.g. ./configure --without-des-cbc-raw --without-rsa-md4

Fix the configure script (help part/test part).
