    to overwrite and corrupt arbitrary files.
    This issue was only present in gnutls-3.4.12.

  • a/pkgtools-14.2-noarch-7.txz
    In setup.80.make-bootdisk, use -i option with syslinux.
    Thanks to Richard Narron.
    In setup.80.make-bootdisk, try to use syslinux-nomtools. This is more
    reliable due to a race condition between udev and mtools when syslinux
    makes rapid calls to mtools. If syslinux-nomtools is not available, then
    run syslinux within strace which changes the timing enough that it works.
  • n/yptools-2.14-i586-7.txz
    Compile with –libexecdir=/usr/lib${LIBDIRSUFFIX}/yp or else ypserv will
    not be able to start ypxfr on 64-bit. Thanks to Jonathan Woithe.
