Update Information:

Update to libHX 3.6 fixing a buffer overflow in HX_split():    * http://libhx.gi
pam_mount v2.5 (August 10 2010)  ===============================  Changes:  -
mount.crypt: fix incorrect processing of binary files in keyfile passthrough  -
call mount.crypt by means of mount -t crypt (selinux), same for umount  -
reorder the default path to search in /usr/local first, then /usr, /  - config:
add missing fd0ssh command to restore volumes using ssh  - ofl is now run as a
separate process (selinux policy simplification)    libHX v3.6 (August 16 2010)
===========================  Fixed:  - bitmap: set/clear/test had no effect due
to wrong type selection  - bitmap: avoid left-shift larger than type on 64-bit
- string: fixed buffer overflow in HX_split when too few fields were present in
the input    libHX 3.5 (August 01 2010)  ==========================  Fixed:  -
format2: failure to skip escaped char in "%(echo foo\ bar)" was corrected  -
proc: properly check for HXPROC_STDx--HXPROC_STDx_NULL overlap  - strquote: do
not cause allocation with invalid format numbers  Enhancements:  - format2: add
the %(exec) function  - format2: add the %(shell) function  - format2: security
feature for %(exec) and %(shell)  - format2: add the %(snl) function  - string:
HX_strquote gained HXQUOTE_LDAPFLT (LDAP search filter) support  - string:
HX_strquote gained HXQUOTE_LDAPRDN (LDAP relative DN) support  Changes:  -
format1: removed older formatter in favor of format2  - format2: add check for
empty key  - format2: function-specific delimiters  - format2: do nest-counting
even with normal parentheses  - format2: check for zero-argument function calls
- hashmap: do not needlessy change TID when no reshape was done  - string:
HX_basename (the fast variant) now recognizes the root directory  - string:
HX_basename now returns the trailing component with slashes instead of
everything after the last slash (which may have been nothing)
