Description Sam James archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2020-05-18 21:22:06 UTC
This is quite a well-known package and we already have dev-libs/libtommath in tree already.

Currently, net-misc/dropbear bundles libtomcrypto.
Comment 1 Sam James archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2020-05-18 21:48:46 UTC
Note that libtommath can use tomsfastmath (bug 723856) optionally.

    dev-libs/libtomcrypt: new package
    "LibTomCrypt is a fairly comprehensive, modular and portable
    cryptographic toolkit"
    A number of packages bundle libtomcrypt at the moment.  Finally add
    the package, so we can start unbundling.
    Original ebuild by Sam James with a few style updates by me.
