 Log Message:
 Update security/libsodium from version 0.3 to 0.4.1
 Provided in pkg PR/47767 by csosstudy
 Changes from previous version:
        * Version 0.4.1
         - sodium_version_*() functions were not exported in version 0.4. They
        are now visible as intended.
         - sodium_init() now calls randombytes_stir().
         - optimized assembly version of salsa20 is now used on amd64.
         - further cleanups and enhanced compatibility with non-C99 compilers.
        * Version 0.4
         - Most constants and operations are now available as actual functions
        instead of macros, making it easier to use from other languages.
         - New operation: crypto_generichash, featuring a variable key size, a
        variable output size, and a streaming API. Currently implemented using
         - The package can be compiled in a separate directory.
         - aes128ctr functions are exported.
         - Optimized versions of curve25519 (curve25519_donna_c64), poly1305
        (poly1305_53) and ed25519 (ed25519_ref10) are available. Optionally 
        sodium_init() once before using the library makes it pick the fastest
         - New convenience function: sodium_memzero() in order to securely
        wipe a memory area.
         - A whole bunch of cleanups and portability enhancements.
         - On Windows, a .REF file is generated along with the shared library,
        for use with Visual Studio. The installation path for these has become
        $prefix/bin as expected by MingW.
