    Update fetchmail to 6.3.20.
    Requested by PR#45030.
    fetchmail-6.3.20 (released 2011-06-06, 26005 LoC):
    * CVE-2011-1947:
      STARTTLS: Fetchmail runs the IMAP STARTTLS or POP3 STLS negotiation with 
      set timeout (default five minutes) now. This was reported missing, with
      observed fetchmail freezes beyond a week, by Thomas Jarosch.
         SSL-wrapped connections were unaffected by this timeout, so users of 
      versions can force ssl-wrapped connections -- if supported by the server 
      with the --ssl command line or ssl rcfile option.
      See fetchmail-SA-2011-01.txt for further details.
    * IMAP: Do not search for UNSEEN messages in ranges. Usually, there are 
very few
      new messages and most of the range searches result in nothing. Instead, 
      the long response to make the IMAP driver think that there are multiple 
      of response. (Sunil Shetye)
    * Do not print "skipping message" for old messages even in verbose mode. If
      there are too many old messages, the logs just get filled without any real
      activity. (Sunil Shetye) (suggested by Yunfan Jiang)
    * Build: fetchmail now always uses its own MD5 implementation rather than 
      to find a system library with matched header. The library and header 
      found on systems are too diverse, and the code size saving is not worth 
      more wasted user or programmer time.
    * Call strlen() only once when removing CRLF from a line. (Sunil Shetye)
    * fetchmail sets Internet domain sockets to "keepalive" mode now. Note that
      there is no portable way to configure actual timeouts for this mode, and 
      systems only support a system-wide timeout setting. fetchmail does not
      attempt to tune the time spans of keepalive mode.

    * fetchmail does not handle messages without Message-ID header well
      (See bug #780933)
    * BSMTP is mostly untested and errors can cause corrupt output.
    * Sun Workshop 6 (SPARC) is known to miscompile the configuration file 
lexer in
      64-bit mode.  Either compile 32-bit code or use GCC to compile 64-bit
      fetchmail.  Note that fetchmail doesn't take advantage of 64-bit code,
      so compiling 32-bit SPARC code should not cause any difficulties.
    * fetchmail does not track pending deletes over crashes.
    * the command line interface is sometimes a bit stubborn, for instance,
      fetchmail -s doesn't work with a daemon running.
    * Linux systems may return duplicates of an IP address in some 
circumstances if
      no or no global IPv6 addresses are configured.
      (No workaround. Ubuntu Bug#582585, Novell Bug#606980.)
    * Kerberos 5 may be broken, particularly on Heimdal, and provide bogus error
      messages. This will not be fixed, because the maintainer has no Kerberos 5
      server to test against. Use GSSAPI.
    fetchmail-6.3.19 (released 2010-12-10, 25945 LoC):
    * fetchmail 6.3.18 contains several bug fixes that were considered 
      grave to warrant the issue of an erratum notice, fetchmail-EN-2010-03.txt.
    * When specifying multiple local multidrop lists, do not lose wildcard flag.
      (Affects "user foo is bar baz * is joe here")
    * In multidrop configurations, an asterisk can now appear anywhere in the 
      of local users, not just at the end.
    * In multidrop mode, header parsing is now more verbose in -vv mode, so 
that it
      becomes possible to see which header is used.
    * Make --antispam work from command line (these used to work in rcfiles).
      Reported by Kees Bakker, BerliOS Bug #17599. (Sunil Shetye)
    * Smoke test XHTML 1.1 validation, and if it fails, skip validating HTML
      documents.  Skip validating Mailbox-Names-UTF7.html. Several systems have
      broken XHTML 1.1 DTD installations that jeopardize the build.
      Reported by Mihail Nechkin against FreeBSD port.
      Workaround for 6.3.18: build in a separate directory, i. e:
      mkdir build && cd build && ../configure --options-go-here
    * Send a NOOP only after a failed STARTTLS in IMAP. (Sunil Shetye)
    * Demote GSSAPI verbose/debug syslog to INFO severity. Requested by Carlos 
E. R.
      and Derek Simkowiak via the fetchmail-users@ mailing list.
    * Do STARTTLS/STLS negotiation in IMAP/POP3 if it is mandatory even if the
      server capabilities do not show support for upgradation to TLS.
      To use this, configure --sslproto tls1. (Sunil Shetye)
    * IMAP: Understand empty strings as FETCH response, seen on Yahoo. Reported 
      Yasin Malli to fetchmail-users@ 2010-12-10.
      Note that fetchmail continues to expect literals as FETCH response for 
    * The manual page now links to IANA for GSSAPI service names.

    fetchmail-6.3.18 (released 2010-10-09, 25936 LoC):
    * Fetchmail now only accepts wildcard certificate common names and subject
      alternative names if they start with "*.". Previous versions would accept
      wildcards even if no period followed immediately.
    * Fetchmail now disallows wildcards in certificates to match domain literals
      (such as, or wildcards in domain literals ("*.168.23.23").
      The test is overly picky and triggers if the pattern (after skipping the
      initial wildcard "*") or domain consists solely of digits and dots, and 
      matches more than needed.
    * Fetchmail now disallows wildcarding top-level domains.
    * Fetchmail 6.3.15, 6.3.16, and 6.3.17 would pick up libmd5 to obtain MD5*
      functions, as an effect of an undocumented Solaris MD5 fix.
      This caused all MD5-related functions to malfunction if, for instance, was installed on other operating systems as part of libwww on
      machines where long isn't 32-bits, i. e. usually on 64-bit computers.
      Fixes Gentoo Bug #319283, reported, including libwww hint, by Karl 
      Side effect: fetchmail will now use -lmd on Solaris rather than -lmd5.
    * Fetchmail 6.3.17 warned about insecure SSL/TLS connections even if a 
      --sslfingerprint was specified. This is an omission from an SSL usability
      change made in 6.3.17.
      Fixes Debian Bug#580796 reported by Roland Stigge.
    * Fetchmail will now apply timeouts to the authentication stage.
      This stage encompasses STARTTLS/STLS negotiation in IMAP/POP3.
      Reported missing by Thomas Jarosch.
    * Fetchmail now cancels GSSAPI authentication properly when encountering GSS
      errors, such as no or unsuitable credentials.
      It now sends an asterisk on a line by its own, as required in SASL.
        This fixes protocol synchronization issues that cause Authentication
      failures, often observed with kerberized MS Exchange servers.
      Fixes Debian Bug #568455 reported by Patrick Rynhart, and Alan Murrell, 
to the
      fetchmail-users list. Fix verified by Thomas Voigtmann and Patrick 
    * Fetchmail will no longer print connection attempts and errors for one host
      in "silent" and "normal" logging modes, unless all connections fail. This
      should reduce irritation around refused-connection logging if services are
      only on an IPv4 socket if the host also supports IPv6. Often observed as
      connections refused to ::1/25 when the subsequent connection to
      then - silently - succeeds.  Fetchmail, unless in verbose mode, will 
      all connect errors and only report them if all of them fail.
    * Fetchmail will not try GSSAPI authentication automatically, unless it has 
      credentials. However, if GSSAPI authentication is requested explicitly,
      fetchmail will always try it.
    * Fetchmail now parses response to "FETCH n:m RFC822.SIZE" and "FETCH n
      RFC822.HEADER" in a more flexible manner. (Sunil Shetye)
    * The manual page clearly states that --principal is for Kerberos 4 only, 
      for Kerberos 5 or GSSAPI. Found by Thomas Voigtmann.
    * When encountering incorrect headers, fetchmail will refer to the 
      option in the manpage.
      Fixes BerliOS Bug #17272, change suggested by Björn Voigt.
    * Fetchmail now decodes and reports GSSAPI status codes upon errors.
    * Fetchmail now autoprobes NTLM also for POP3.
    * The Fetchmail FAQ has a new item #R15 on authentication failures.
    * The common NTLM authentication code was factored out from pop3.c and
