I don't think that importing all the rest of heimdal would help that,
unless we actually moved to doing recursive configure, which I think
would be a very bad idea.

I think both the build problems and the warnings are likely to get
fixed faster if its in the tree. Hopefully you will then be able to
work with lha to reduce the warnings?

I certainly don't think this should hold up putting the code in.
