USE=krb4 requires app-crypt/mit-krb5 built with USE=krb4, which is only available for < mit-krb5-1.7.  I adjusted the dependency.  x86 stable.

CVE-2009-2666 (
  socket.c in fetchmail before 6.3.11 does not properly handle a '\0'
  character in a domain name in the subject's Common Name (CN) field of
  an X.509 certificate, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to
  spoof arbitrary SSL servers via a crafted certificate issued by a
  legitimate Certification Authority, a related issue to CVE-2009-2408.
