  Ugh.  I wouldn't be surprised if that was it.

  Both GnuTLS and NSS provide compatibility layers for OpenSSL.  But.... they're *compatibility* layers, not 100% emulators.

  The solution is ensure that all libraries and applications use the same SSL library.  Since FreeRADIUS *can't* be ported to GnuTLS / NSS, then LDAP, etc. has to be build with OpenSSL.

  OpenSSL just provides more functionality than the other libraries.  We would lose a lot of features if we tried to use them.
