Testing vs. CVS as of today.

SCO 3.2v4.2:


  error: "This Platform is no longer supported."

  (well, that was just for completeness anyway)

NetBSD 2.0.2 on Sparc64 (should find all endianness and word-size issues):

- configure:

  WARNING: the operating system that you are using does not 
  appear to support either the getpeereid() API nor the 
  SO_PEERCRED getsockopt() option. These facilities are used to 
  enforce security checks to prevent unauthorised connections to 
  ssh-agent. Their absence increases the risk that a malicious 
  user can connect to your agent. 

out of curiousity: who *does* support this, if not the BSDs?  Or is it
just NetBSD that can't do it yet?

- make:

  all fine

- make tests:

  reexec tests: proto 2
  ok reexec tests
  run test ...
  ok broken keys

  --> all fine

good work!


USENET is *not* the non-clickable part of WWW!
