Re: Licensing problem for Fedora

Paul, is there any problem with using the patch for the Fedora version? I'm on the road now and don't know when I'll have time to sit down and get this committed.

Absolutely, if you can prepare a patch, I'll get it committed as soon as possible.
The attached patch is against the Fedora snapshot of CVS from
2006-05-27.  I am not a hardcore C guy, so it would behoove you to check
my work carefully. :-)  If I did something wrong, please don't hesitate
to let me know, so I can learn from the error.

In short, I did the following:
* File removals:
- src/md5.c
- src/md5.h
* src/utils.c:
- fixed header include
- fixed md5_hash() function to use beecrypt MD5 library (LGPLv2.1+)
* src/
- removed md5.{c,h}
- Added check for beecrypt/md5.h header
- Added check for beecrypt lib

Cool! I'm currently in the process of moving to the west coast, so I don't actually have a machine capable of testing this. I do have a Debian server to build it on and apply it from, but if someone else could test it out and let me know if there are any problems, I'll try to get it committed as soon as I can.

Yeah, it works here but testing would be appreciated.  I have only a few
more days to get this into Fedora before we freeze, at which point this
either has to be license-fixed, or removed.  Thanks to anyone who can
help out.
