Security issues in gnutls-2.2.1

According to the Simon Josefsson, there are security issues with version 2.2.1.
"Unless you back-port security fixes to 2.2.x, you want to use the 2.8.x release to get proper security fixes."
There are two other issues with 2.2.1 I am aware of.
I do not know exactly what the bug is, but I'm told there are security issues with this release.
I tried to create a .spkg from the latest release, but that failed to build on Solaris 10 (SPARC) so was worst than the older release, though the developers tell me it should be ok.
