I have had several problems trying to build the MacOS projects (that
came with krb5-1.0), so many that sending a detailed bug report will
take quite a bit of effort, so before I send a report could you please
let me know if you know of problems like the following:
all files have the wrong creator ('MWCC' instead of 'CWIE')
projects contain files that don't exist
header files #define some existing functions to functions that
don't exist (send() becomes krb5_send())
project files do not have any "Access Paths" preferences (a big
problem since many files have the same name).
programs can not be linked because of missing files
CFM projects do not have the necessary "main" function

After two days of hacking at the sources, I did eventually get all the
programs to compile, however k5config crashed if 'krb5.ini' wasn't in
the preferences folder and the NCSA Telnet plugin would crash the
computer when Telnet was started.

Please let me know if you know about these issues so that I know how
much info I have to include in a bug report.

It's a known problem that the Project files for the Macintosh
are very much out of date.

Also, note that we are not using the Project files to create the
CFM libraries anymore. Now what we do is we use MPW makefiles, since
it's much easier to keep them in sync with the Unix makefiles. What
happens is on a Unix machine, you run the command

make -f kerbsrc.mac.tar

This generates a tar file which can then be unpacked on a Macintosh (you
need a Macintosh tar program, obviously). The tar file contains an mpw
makefile, which can be used to compile the libraries. Once you have the
libraries compiled, then it's relatively easy to fix the project files
for the applications to build the applications.

I hope this helps at least with the build problems!

Unfortunately we haven't had as much resources looking at the Macintosh
side of things, so it's there right now the Macintosh krb5 port
admittedly doesn't compare well with the Windows port...

MIT distributes a binary distribution of Kerberos for current Mac operating systems.
(I'm closing out really old Kerberos bug reports)
