Description mcintosh 1999-06-02 19:50:54 UTC
The dip code for S/Key has always been broken on Linux/x86.
(Someone used "dos" as a proxy for "x86", which is wrong.)
The code is still self-consistent, but will not work with a
big-endian server such as a Sparc.  The (recent?) definition
of LITTLE_ENDIAN in /usr/include/endian.h means that the
Sparc code will now probably mis-compile as well.

I will post a fix when I get a bug number.

Fixed in dip-3.3.7o-15. Thanks for the patch.
