The crypt plugin can use, but doesn't have to use, and doesn't need build-time 
information for, several external libs for [de]compression. So in that sense 
it's unlike the optional-build plugins. For 'make' purposes it's treated as a 
normal plugin.

SIGKILL is name of signal 9 - passed for kill -9 pid
SIGTERM is name of signal 15 - passed for kill [-15] pid

xkill might do something other than just initiate one of these, but a very 
quick check suggests it's the same effect as plain kill.
