For actual parsing of XML profiles, nALFS uses the libxml2 (a.k.a.
gnome-xml) library. You can find it on its homepage, http://xmlsoft.org/.
If you use <download> and/or <unpack> elements in your profiles, and
wish to have the source file contents verified by computing digests, you
can use MD5 digests without requiring any additional libraries while
building nALFS. If you wish to use digests other than MD5 (i.e. SHA-1),
nALFS can be built using the OpenSSL library from http://www.openssl.org/.
If you use <download> and/or <unpack> elements in your profiles and wish
to get better download performance (and more reliability) than using
"wget" for the download processes, nALFS can be built using the curl
libraries that are included in the curl distribution from
(lifted from the README file)
