Re: gnutls26 insanely slow on m68k (compared to openssl)

Yes, I do. I’ve got a setup where I stream a BSD’s /dev/arandom (a
stretching RNG; the box itself has got an entropyKey so I’m fine,
random-wise) over SSL to the GNU/Linux boxen which run rng-tools.

Should being the keyword, as you can see from below, with
CA certificate checking gnutls26 is much much slower than
without (and gnutls28 appears file but ISTR it can’t be used
by most software due to licencing issues), but wget still
takes twice the time… hrm… adding Noël back to Cc…

Yes. (When I use a GET instead of a HEAD, the times do not
really change.)

Note: the assertions in dn.c scroll by rather slow, I could almost
type in that speed.
