While certainly bdes has no place in being used for a new crypto anything,
I might even be in favor of this if there was an equivalent port available,
It turns out, bdes does its own special thing to deal with a partial block at the end of the ciphered message. So when you decrypt it with openssl, you get an error, and the last 1-7 bytes of the message are cut off. (DES uses an 8 byte block size).
Kirk's website already offers a tarball of bdes you can download to decrypt his videos. If someone wants to create that as a port, that is fine with me, but i don't think we should keep it in the base system.
