Hi Jeff,
I've just typed make make LIBS='-lcrypto -lz' from the shell inside the
directory containing the whole first commit and it seems to work. I
trace all through the code. Yes the fetch command wasn't written at
that time, right? I didn't understand why should be better to work with
the git code from github. There's something I misunderstood?
Thank you Jeff ;-)
