FOOTNOTES
=========

  *1 = requires OpenSSL or GnuTLS
  *2 = requires OpenLDAP
  *3 = requires a GSSAPI-compliant library, such as Heimdal or similar.
  *4 = requires FBopenssl
  *5 = requires a krb4 library, such as the MIT one or similar.
  *6 = requires c-ares
  *7 = requires OpenSSL specificly, as GnuTLS only supports SSLv3 and TLSv1
