The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


This update for tpm2-tss-engine fixes the following issues :

- Added support to disable fixed compilation flags

- Added --disable-defaultflags during compilation to avoid breakage of our gcc-PIE profile (resulted in non-position-independent executable tpm2-tss-genkey, bsc#1183895)

This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-15-SP2:Update update project.


Update the affected tpm2-tss-engine packages.
