Updated: ssmtp-2.61-1

ssmtp is an extremely simple sendmail replacement, which forwards 
messages to a mailhub (e.g., your ISP's outgoing mail server), and does 
nothing else.

I've taken over maintainership of cygwin's ssmtp package.  This release, 
the first in almost two years, is updated to the latest debian source 
and patchlevel (2.61-11.1, 2007 Mar 03).  This release is compiled with 
SSL/TLS support, provided by openssl.

Use the included ssmtp-config script to configure the service; see 
/usr/share/doc/Cygwin/ssmtp-2.61.README and 'man ssmtp.conf' for more 
information.  Note that the ssmtp-config script will /not/ automatically 
configure SSL/TLS support -- you must do that manually.

Changes since 2.60.9-3
o routine update to upstream source
o use cygport build system
o adopt debian patchset wholesale
o compile with SSL/TLS support (via openssl, not gnutls)
o compile with CRAM-MD5 AUTH support
