Description (last modified by mariah)

The current version of GnuTLS in Sage has multiple issues, not all of which will probably be solved by this ticket, but at least of subset of them will be.

  • The current version in Sage is very old.
  • There are security issues with the current version - see #7542
  • There's no spkg-check file - see #9308
  • It fails to build on AIX - see #9974
  • It fails to build on HP-UX - see #7511
  • make is used instead of $MAKE
  • -m64 is hard-coded as the compiler flag needed for 64-bit builds
  • SPKG.txt lacks the Special Update/Build Instructions section.
  • There's an incomplete list of dependencies in SKG.txt, with a remark to FIXME

An upgrade and attempt to clean up this package is http://boxen.math.washington.edu/home/mariah/spkg/gnutls-2.12.3.spkg
