The man > page doesn't explain this very well. It seems that openssl has changed the certificate hash algorithm from md5 to sha1, and the man page even hints at this: http://www.openssl.org/docs/apps/x509.html This is really about openssl and not a NetBSD-specific issue, but people who have symlinks in CA directories will find that on upgrading that validation fails. I can't find this explained in upstream's NEWS or Changelog.
