Hi All,

sorry for the late response - just got round to read through all mails.

Regarding the ENABLE_THREADS conditional:

One of the obscure platforms I have to build Kerberos on is the HP
NonStop platform on which multithreading is done is a very NonStop
specific way without using the "standard" threading mechanisms. So I
would appreciate it very much if the ENABLE_THREADS conditional was
kept, especially if - as Greg said - the benefits of removing may not be
worth it.

And let me say - thanks for your work on such a great piece of software
- both are very much appreciated!
