Interesting, thanks.  It's not an i386, so what platform was this on?  I
wonder if it's an issue with the age of some of the openpgpsdk code -
this argument changed type in openssl some time ago, IIRC?

The casts are in the original vendor branch code; I've been feeding back
our patches, and I'll feed this one back, too. I trust Ben Laurie to be
intimate with the openssl code, somehow, so we'll see what he says :-).
