You need to introduce a fourth function.  I suggest that you take
DES_bs_crypt_LM(), copy it to a new function, and remove the
initialization of B from there (let the caller specify the initial B).
This way, you get a function implementing one DES block encryption
(for DES_BS_DEPTH different blocks and/or keys in parallel).  As to
block cipher modes, you'll implement those externally to that function
(at least initially).

Another question I expected from you was how to set arbitrary DES keys
when the current DES_bs_set_key*() functions accept ASCII strings only.
I'll answer this one without waiting for you to ask it. ;-)  I suggest
that you simply use DES_bs_set_key() for now, but set bit 8 in every
char (OR it with 0x80) to ensure that all 8 chars (with 7 significant
bits per char) are processed.  We may introduce a more efficient binary
key setup function later.

Thanks,

Alexander
