I've now confirmed that Dynix/PTX has a bad socket() (and friends)
implementation.  All the other software we've written makes use of
TLI instead.

Can Kerberos be built in a TLI only environment?  Is it possible to
inform configure to ignore libsocket on a given platform?  Can the
apps/BSD/login program be compiled without sockets?
