A month ago, I noticed that OpenSSL applications had drastically slowed
from July to October -- 30% to 300%, depending on the size of the big
numbers being tested.
I was not able to find serious differences in the .c code.
Today, after several hours on the phone (long distance), Perry Metzger
had an epiphany. The reason that I couldn't find differences in .c --
some i386 assembly code files had been deleted (July 24).
I don't know whether this applies to other platforms, such as Alpha,
that also have/had asm code in openssl.
I'm still compiling, but I thought any i386 folks would want a heads up.
You'll want to update your -current ASAP!!!
Thank you, Perry!
