Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.6.8nb4, Package name: mcrypt-2.6.8nb4, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Mcrypt:

mcrypt is intended to be a replacement of the old unix crypt(1)
under the GNU General Public License. Unix Crypt(1) was a popular(?)
file encryption program in unix boxes. It was based on the enigma
encryption algorithm but it was considerable trivialized. Since
this was not adequate, even for individual privacy needs, I decided
to create a similar program using some modern block encryption
algorithms. Mcrypt also has a compatibility mode with unix crypt(1)
and with solaris des(1). It supports all the algorithms and modes
found in libmcrypt and it is very extendable. At the time writing
this, it supports the algorithms: BLOWFISH, TWOFISH, DES, TripleDES,
3-WAY, SAFER, LOKI97, GOST, RC2, RC6, MARS, IDEA, RIJNDAEL, SERPENT,
CAST, ARCFOUR and WAKE. Block algorithms are implemented in modes:
CFB, CBC, ECB, OFB (8 bit and n bit, where n is the size of the
algorithm's block length). For a brief description of the algorithms
and the modes look at the mcrypt manpage (this may be out of date).
In mcrypt it is on the user to decide which algorithm he considers
best for encrypting his data.

Log message:
Add various patches from (Brew, Debian, Red Hat, SUSE)

Upstream for mcrypt is effectively dead so incorporate patches from
other OSS packaging systems.  These patches address the following:

* CVE-2012-4409 (fix)
* CVE-2012-4527 (fix)
* Spelling and grammar fixes for man page
* Fix potential format-string attacks (no vulnerability Id)
* Fix potential buffer overflows (no vulnerability Id)
* Make native format default as in Debian, Red Hat, and SUSE since
  openpgp format handling is seriously broken.
* Fix ARM build [unclear if this is necessary for non-Linux systems]
* Correct include file for OSX

Log message:
Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for security category

Problems found locating distfiles:
	Package f-prot-antivirus6-fs-bin: missing distfile fp-NetBSD.x86.32-fs-6.2.3.tar.gz
	Package f-prot-antivirus6-ws-bin: missing distfile fp-NetBSD.x86.32-ws-6.2.3.tar.gz

	Package uvscan: missing distfile vlp4510e.tar.Z

Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden).  All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.
