The Kerberos team has already spoken to the LPRng folks about their 
use of these internal functions.  They should have implemented their 
own versions.  However, I think the Athena environment uses an older 
version of the Kerberos support, so you might not be able to take the 
latest LPRng release.

If you can't use the latest release of LPRng, then you should do what 
Jeffrey Altman said and use krb5_read_message and krb5_write_message 
sources as examples of how to write a do/while loop around BSD socket 

Hope this helps,
