Oh, very good. Since that part of the file wasn't quoted in your patch, I
wasn't sure what the license on nss_winbind.c might be. That was the main
reason I suggested some care in what you link against.
You do also appear to be linking against OpenSSL's libcrypto, which has the
potential to be problematic (IIRC, OpenSSL has a non-GPL-compatible
license). I don't know if tridge's code has OpenSSL dependencies or if
that's only there for AFS's benefit; if the latter, you can replace the
reference with one to the libdes shipped with OpenAFS.
