kerberized utilities and encryption

I'm trying to look through the utilities that are shipped with the 
1.3 sources to figure out what type of encryption they use. The
telnet utility has a command to show what is supported and responds
with the following which I assume is 64 bit DES:

        DES_CFB64 (1)
        DES_OFB64 (2)

I cannot find any documentation on the others as to what encryption 
is used when you specify the -x option. What is used by ftp, rcp, 
rsh, and rlogin (rlogin man page says it uses des but doesn't say the
keylength)? Do they all use 64 bit DES?
