I have not visited this newgroup for some time so I'm a bit behind in this thread.
As author of the above mentioned library (and living in oz.au) I am not aware of
any oz DoD restrictions on export. ftp.psy.uq.oz.au has been a source for
a non US DES implementation for used in X11R5 and X11R6 for years now.
I have also posted earlier version of this library
in comp.sources.misc and have yet to have the people come
for me in the middle of the night :-).
I would not wory about ftp'ing from psych.psy.uq.oz.au.
