After checking the test output .html, I notices that all of the failures 
had to do with TLS and SSL.  The log is too large to post in the e-mail 
(I guess it is time for me to learn how to tar/compress files and not 
just unpack them).

Anyway, could this have something to do with openSSL?  It is installed 
per the BLFS instructions, but the version I installed was openSSL-0.97 
(I think it was"i" in early April when I installed it) not 0.98a or b.

If this turns out to be part (if not all) of the problem, can 
openSSL-0.98b (current BLFS-SVN) be installed without mucking up 
everything else?

Thanks again,
