I was able to compile the latest Kermit from sources and put the  
resulting binary in a network accessible location.  This should be  
good enough for now.  But I wonder why Kermit is no longer available.

The next missing package is DDD?  I was able to download the RPM from  
the EPEL repo (I do not want to enable that repo on my systems) and  
install it on my systems.  But again, I wonder why that package is no  
longer available?  Both DDD and Kermit were part of the base repo in  
CentOS 4.X.
