Hi Simon:

Thank you for answering my questions so thoroughly, and I complement
you on the clarity of the UC Linux porting menus on your website.
What versions of libgcrypt and the the standard GSASL libraries
do you consider most stable ? I am particularly curious about
libgnutls and those parts related to TLS.

Best Regards,

Paul R.
