I just fetched the file and it looks fine.  The tar file contains two 
files, krb5-1.3.5.tar.gz (the real source for the release) and 
krb5-1.3.5.tar.gz.asc (a PGP signature for the former).

Do you have some sort of interesting web proxy or anything?  Or some 
kind of fetch-by-mail mechanism where a virus scanner would interfere?

We do have a Word document vbaxam.doc in that directory; it came with 
the AES code we picked up.  It contains VBA code demonstrating the use 
of the library.  But it's not used as part of the build, not installed, 
etc.  It's just there in case someone wants it for reference.
