Log Message:
Update to 1.2.9:

* Version 1.2.9 (2005-11-07)
- Documentation was updated and improved.
- RSA-MD2 is now supported for verifying digital signatures.
- Due to cryptographic advances, verifying untrusted X.509
  certificates signed with RSA-MD2 or RSA-MD5 will now fail with a
  GNUTLS_CERT_INSECURE_ALGORITHM verification output.  For
  applications that must remain interoperable, you can use the
  flags when verifying certificates.  Naturally, this is not
  recommended default behaviour for applications.  To enable the
  broken algorithms, call gnutls_certificate_set_verify_flags with the
  proper flag, to change the verification mode used by
- Make it possible to send empty data through gnutls_record_send,
  to align with the send(2) API.
- Some changes in the certificate receiving part of handshake to prevent
  some possible errors with non-blocking servers.
- Added numeric version symbols to permit simple CPP-based feature
  tests, suggested by Daniel Stenberg <>.
- The (experimental) low-level crypto alternative to libgcrypt used
  earlier (Nettle) has been replaced with crypto code from gnulib.
  This leads to easier re-use of these components in other projects,
  leading to more review and simpler maintenance.  The new configure
  parameter --with-builtin-crypto replace the old --with-nettle, and
  must be used if you wish to enable this functionality.  See README
  under "Experimental" for more information.  Internally, GnuTLS has
  been updated to use the new "Generic Crypto" API in gl/gc.h.  The
  API is similar to the old crypto/gc.h, because the gnulib code were
  based on GnuTLS's gc.h.
- Fix compiler warning in the "anonself" self test.
- API and ABI modifications:
gnutls_x509_crt_list_verify: Added 'const' to prototype in <gnutls/x509.h>.
                             This doesn't reflect a change in behaviour,
                             so we don't break backwards compatibility.
GNUTLS_MAC_MD2: New gnutls_mac_algorithm_t value.
GNUTLS_DIG_MD2: New gnutls_digest_algorithm_t value.
GNUTLS_VERIFY_ALLOW_SIGN_RSA_MD5: New gnutls_certificate_verify_flags values.
                                  Use when calling
                                  gnutls_x509_crt_verify, or
GNUTLS_CERT_INSECURE_ALGORITHM: New gnutls_certificate_status_t value,
                                used when broken signature algorithms
                                is used (currently RSA-MD2/MD5).
LIBGNUTLS_VERSION_NUMBER: New CPP symbols, indicating the GnuTLS
			  version number, can be used for feature existence
