facing upto #674267
We need to deal with this issue before the release (and preferably
freeze). We have finally managed to get oracle to verify the issue and
now we are awaiting triage. However obviously that is not going to help
us in the short term.
We have now identified two options - both of which are restricted to the
i386/kfreebsd-i386/hurd (i.e. any-i386) platforms.
1.) compile against gcc-4.5 and g++-4.5
2.) set the magic TAOCRYPT_DISABLE_X86ASM thingy causing SSL connections
on those platforms to be slower.
