I've split all of the OpenSSL and GnuTLS-specific code into their own separate
source files, to clean up some of the #ifdef mess that was in tls.c before.
This approach actually allows support for both to be compiled in at the same
time. I'll probably add an LDAP_OPT_X option to select which implementation to
use at runtime. (It might make sense to make these dynamically loadable
modules, but for now I don't want to make libldap dependent on
I have not committed these changes yet. Probably will in the next day or two
unless there are objections.
There's one user-visible change: get_option(LDAP_OPT_X_TLS_SSL_CTX) now
returns a pointer to a privately defined structure. For GnuTLS this is in fact
the same behavior as before. For OpenSSL this is a change; it used to return
the actual (SSL *). If this is going to break something of yours, holler now...
