 Log Message:
 Update to 4.3.17. The last two teeny versions were for bug fixes.
 Also contains the inode check expansion for NetBSD from PR 48575
 Upstream changelog:
 Changes for 4.3.15 - 4.3.17
 No significant changes.
 Changes for 4.3.14
 In previous Xymon versions, a client-only configuration (i.e. one
 configured with "./configure --client") would place the client
 files in a "client" subdirectory below the directory specified
 during configuration. This is the same directory layout as a server
 installation, where the server and client parts of Xymon are
 in separate subdirectories.
 In 4.3.14, the default has changed so a client-only installation
 now installs in the directory given during the configure-step.
 The "/client" has been eliminated, so if you are upgrading an
 existing client you must either move the old client installation
 one level up from the "client/" directory, or change the Makefile
 generated by "configure --client" and add "/client" to the
 The SNI support added in 4.3.13 causes problems with some older
 webservers, whose SSL implementation cannot handshake correctly
 when SNI is used. The failed handshake causes Xymon to report
 the site as down. In 4.3.14, the default is changed so SNI is
 disabled. A new "--sni" option was added to xymonnet to control the
 default setting, and two new tags "sni" and "nosni" can be used in
 hosts.cfg to control SNI for each host that is tested.
 Changes for 4.3.13
 This is mostly a bugfix release. Apart from simple bugs (see
 the Changes file), there are some enhancements:
 Alerts sent via e-mail have <CR><NL> line-endings converted
 to plain <NL>, since the carriage-return characters would
 cause some mailers to send alerts as a (binary) attachment
 to an empty mail message.
 https-URL's can be forced to use TLS only, by using
 "httpst://..." similar to how SSLv2 and SSLv3 can be chosen.
 SSL connections (e.g. for https URL's) now use the TLS
 "Server Name Indication" (SNI) if your OpenSSL library
 supports it. This allows testing of systems that have
 multiple SSL websites located on the same physical IP+port
 (i.e. virtual name-based hosts).
 Changes for 4.3.12
 NOTE: This release includes a bugfix for a security issue
 in the xymond_history and xymond_rrd modules. A "drophost"
 command sent to the xymond port (default: 1984) from an IP
 listed in the --admin-senders access control list can be
 used to delete files owned by the user running the xymond
 daemon. This is allowed by default, so it is highly recommended
 to install this update.
 Changes for 4.3.2 - 4.3.11
 See the Changes file for a list of significant changes.
 These releases are mostly to fix bugs.
 NOTE: Some configuration parameters have changed, so you must
 regenerate the top-level Makefile by running the "configure"
 script before compiling the new version.
 The inode-check introduced in 4.3.8 and 4.3.10 requires
 that you update both the Xymon server installation and the
 Xymon client on the systems where you want to monitor how
 many inodes are being used.
