I believe this was fixed, but if not, you need to report it to novel who
did the libtasn1 update.

Thanks Joe for your response.  If I understand, gnutls is probably not the
culprit.  I did deinstall and tried to recompile it with no success
yesterday.  Looks like I only need to deinstall/reinstall libtasn1.

Thanks again.

This is just a brief follow-up.  I just found a recent upgrade for libtasn1.
It is version 3.3 of May 7 vs my version 3.1 of Mar 8.  Assuming this, or
another version is the required file to solve my issue, how does this effect
the GNOME upgrade process given that I'm half-way through?  Do I start from
the beginning per UPDATING or simply start with portupgrade -a after I cvsup
my system to update the ports tree?
