Log Message:
Update fetchmail and fetchmailconf to version 6.3.22.

* for CVE-2012-3482:
  NTLM: fetchmail mistook an error message that the server sent in response to
  an NTLM request for protocol exchange, tried to decode it, and crashed while
  reading from a bad memory location.
  Also, with a carefully crafted NTLM challenge packet sent from the server, it
  would be possible that fetchmail conveyed confidential data not meant for the
  server through the NTLM response packet.
  Fix: Detect base64 decoding errors, validate the NTLM challenge, and abort
  NTLM authentication in case of error.
  See fetchmail-SA-2012-02.txt for further details.
  Reported by J. Porter Clark.
* for CVE-2011-3389:
  SSL/TLS (wrapped and STARTTLS): fetchmail used to disable a countermeasure
  against a certain kind of attack against cipher block chaining initialization
  Whether this creates an exploitable situation, depends on the server and the
  negotiated ciphers.
  As a precaution, fetchmail 6.3.22 enables the countermeasure, by clearing
  NOTE that this can cause connections to certain non-conforming servers to
  fail, in which case you can set the environment variable
  FETCHMAIL_DISABLE_CBC_IV_COUNTERMEASURE to any non-empty value when starting
  fetchmail to re-instate the compatibility option at the expense of security.
  Reported by Apple Product Security.

  See fetchmail-SA-2012-01.txt for further details.

* The Server certificate: message in verbose mode now appears on stdout like the
  remainder of the output. Reported by Henry Jensen, to fix Debian Bug #639807.
* The GSSAPI-related autoconf code now matches gssapi.c better, and uses
  a different check to look for GSS_C_NT_HOSTBASED_SERVICE.
  This fixes the GSSAPI-enabled build on NetBSD 6 Beta.

* On systems where SSLv2_client_method isn't defined in OpenSSL (such as
  newer Debian, and Ubuntu starting with 11.10 oneiric ocelot), don't
  reference it (to fix the build) and if configured, print a run-time error
  that the OS does not support SSLv2. Fixes Debian Bug #622054,
  but note that that bug report has a more thorough patch that does away with
  SSLv2 altogether.
* The security and errata notices fetchmail-{EN,SA}-20??-??.txt are now
  under the more relaxed CC BY-ND 3.0 license (the noncommercial clause
  was dropped). The Creative Commons address was updated.
* The Python-related parts were simplified to avoid an automake
  1.11.X bug around noinst_PYTHON, Automake Bug #10995.
* Configuring fetchmail without SSL now triggers a configure warning,
  and asks the user to consider running configure --with-ssl.

* Some servers, notably Zimbra, return A1234 987 FETCH () in response to
  a header request, in the face of message corruption.  fetchmail now treats
  these as temporary errors. Report and Patch by Mikulas Patocka, Red Hat.
* Some servers, notably Microsoft Exchange, return "A0009 OK FETCH completed."
  without any header in response to a header request for meeting reminder
  messages (with a "meeting.ics" attachment). fetchmail now treats these as
  transient errors.  Report by John Connett, Patch by Sunil Shetye.
