- Install the static libfreebl.a that is needed in order

This includes the update of Mozilla NSS to NSS 3.20 New
functionality :

- The TLS library has been extended to support DHE
ciphersuites in server applications. New Functions :

- SSL_DHEGroupPrefSet - Configure the set of
allowed/enabled DHE group parameters that can be used by
NSS for a server socket.

- SSL_EnableWeakDHEPrimeGroup - Enable the use of weak DHE
group parameters that are smaller than the library
default's minimum size. New Types :

- SSLDHEGroupType - Enumerates the set of DHE parameters
embedded in NSS that can be used with function
SSL_DHEGroupPrefSet. New Macros :

- SSL_ENABLE_SERVER_DHE - A socket option user to enable
or disable DHE ciphersuites for a server socket. Notable
Changes :

- For backwards compatibility reasons, the server side
implementation of the TLS library keeps all DHE
ciphersuites disabled by default. They can be enabled
with the new socket option SSL_ENABLE_SERVER_DHE and the
SSL_OptionSet or the SSL_OptionSetDefault API.

- The server side implementation of the TLS implementation
does not support session tickets when using a DHE
ciphersuite (see bmo#1174677).

- Support for the following ciphersuites has been added :




- By default, the server side TLS implementation will use
DHE parameters with a size of 2048 bits when using DHE

- NSS embeds fixed DHE parameters sized 2048, 3072, 4096,
6144 and 8192 bits, which were copied from version 08 of
the Internet-Draft 'Negotiated Finite Field
Diffie-Hellman Ephemeral Parameters for TLS', Appendix

- A new API SSL_DHEGroupPrefSet has been added to NSS,
which allows a server application to select one or
multiple of the embedded DHE parameters as the preferred
parameters. The current implementation of NSS will
always use the first entry in the array that is passed
as a parameter to the SSL_DHEGroupPrefSet API. In future
versions of the TLS implementation, a TLS client might
signal a preference for certain DHE parameters, and the
NSS TLS server side implementation might select a
matching entry from the set of parameters that have been
configured as preferred on the server side.

- NSS optionally supports the use of weak DHE parameters
with DHE ciphersuites to support legacy clients. In
order to enable this support, the new API
SSL_EnableWeakDHEPrimeGroup must be used. Each time this
API is called for the first time in a process, a fresh
set of weak DHE parameters will be randomly created,
which may take a long amount of time. Please refer to
the comments in the header file that declares the
SSL_EnableWeakDHEPrimeGroup API for additional details.

- The size of the default PQG parameters used by certutil
when creating DSA keys has been increased to use 2048
bit parameters.

- The selfserv utility has been enhanced to support the
new DHE features.

- NSS no longer supports C compilers that predate the ANSI
C standard (C89).
