gvpe seems to have been updated (port version: 2.22, new version: 2.25)

Some important items to note from NEWS:

  • Some of the protocol changes are incompatible with previous versions
  • added sha256 and sha512 support to the software (the MacPorts Portfile will want to add rmd160 and sha256 checksums for the tarball, but that is a different issue and unrelated to the support for different checksums within gvpe itself)
  • more conf options
  • better detection of openssl
  • Will now opportunistically link against zlib (for openssl's sake), so the MacPorts Portfile will want to add a dependency on zlib.
  • Configury is based on newer autotools
  • uses the libev 4 API (MacPorts never declared a dependency on libev for gvpe previously, so maybe it will want to add one? gvpe does include its own copy of libev vendored into its tree, but I am not sure if it would be better to use that or the libev port in MacPorts...)
  • License clarification (MacPorts already has the GPL-3+ under its license, so we should be fine there)
  • bug fixes (unfortunately these bug fixes seem to have not included a fix for the build failure that I have been running into, both with the current version and the new version, but that is a separate issue...)

(gvpe has no maintainer btw)
