Log Message:
Initial import of security/libpbc-0.5.10 into the Packages Collection.

        The PBC (Pairing-Based Cryptography) library is a free C library built
        on the GMP library that performs the mathematical operations
        underlying pairing-based cryptosystems.

        It provides routines such as elliptic curve generation, elliptic curve
        arithmetic and pairing computation.

        The API is abstract enough that the PBC library can be used even if
        the programmer possesses only an elementary understanding of pairings.
        There is no need to learn about elliptic curves or much of number
        theory.  (The minimum requirement is some knowledge of cyclic groups
        and properties of the pairing.)
