mail-filter/spamassassin: new revision with LibreSSL and spamd fixes.
This new revision adds another patch for upstream bugs 7093/7199. The sslv3 option for spamd didn't do what it was supposed to do, and moreover, it broke LibreSSL which no longer supports SSLv3. The patch removes the option and makes it an error. There is a simple fix for users, to remove the --ssl-version option if they are using it. Thanks to Reuben Farrelly for reporting the issue. The second round of changes addresses a few old Gentoo bugs regarding the spamd init scripts and configuration. First, the init script was missing a call to "checkpath" to ensure that the PID file had some place to live. That's now fixed. Second, it used to be the case that some configuration was necessary if you opted to run spamd as a non-root user. That is no longer the case, so all of the documentation surrounding that issue has been removed, and the config/init scripts greatly simplified. Finally, a SPAMD_TIMEOUT option was added to allow spamd a little bit of time when restarting or shutting down. Peter Gantner, Juan David Ibáñez Palomar, Marcin Mirosław, Frieder Bürzele, and a few other people helped out on those bugs. Thanks!
